Support our crowdfunding Campaign

Dear Friends!

On April 19, 2019, Architecture in Development is kicking off the Unboxing Architecture crowdfunding campaign!

Why unbox architecture?

Imagine that communities around the world can easily access their most needed expertise and resources to build an environment where they belong and thrive. With the ’Unboxing Architecture’ campaign we want to advance the success of our Buildify 2016 pilot and empower more communities to build their dreams.

Build a global momentum

Unboxing Architecture is a scale up of our Buildify 2016 pilot. It aims to build a global momentum for the mission of making architecture accessible for all, and connect the most impactful initiatives to potential supporters and facilitate collaboration for impact.

Read more about our personal journey with Architecture in Development and our Buildify 2016 pilot.

How to unbox architecture?

We first scout the most urgent community architectural initiatives from our global partners network (100,000+ outreach), and publish all qualified proposals. Then, through a jury process, we select three most feasible projects with tangible impact on communities. And so, we expand and connect our networks to help bring these projects to life!


Library of Muyinga is a great example of community architecture. It's located in Burundi, a country with only two schools for deaf and blind children. BC architects & studies, a community organisation Odedim and the local community joined forces to realise a library that improves education quality and reduces inequality.


Thnouh School is located in Cambodia. This video reveals not only the process but also the reasons why these young professionals decided to work hand-in-hand with communities.
