Press Guidelines

Following the guidelines below will help us respond to your request as quickly as possible. Thank you for your interest in our work.

To schedule an interview
Please contact , our representative at Galloway Media Group to schedule press interviews. In your initial message, please include the following:

  • the name of your publication
  • the topic of your story
  • your exact deadline
  • the date your story will publish
  • the best way to reach you (phone and e-mail)

Frequently we are in different cities and time zones, often with limited phone service. As a result, we schedule time each week for interviews with Cameron Sinclair and Kate Stohr, co-founders of Architecture for Humanity.

To schedule a speaking engagement
We love nothing more than talking about our work and community design in general.
Please email and include the following:

  • the event name, place and date(s)
  • exact commitment being requested (e.g., a one-hour lecture, a 9am to 12pm panel discussion)
  • a short description of the attendees/audience

Please understand, we do ask for a minimum contribution of those who can afford it when scheduling speaking engagements. This supports the work of volunteer designers and helps defray the costs of travel and our staff time in scheduling and preparing for the event. It also allows us to reach out and work with student groups, smaller community organizations and others who wouldn't otherwise be able to learn about our work.

For background information
Please take the time to go through our site, Architecture For Humanity dot org. It gives information on our mission, our history, and information on all current and past projects. It is not always the most up-to-date source, but it's a good start.

For high-res project images and updates
For a current list of projects by name, visit our Projects page. There you will find each project's link to the Open Architecture Network, our open-source network for design solutions. This Network is where we post all Architecture for Humanity projects with high resolution images, project descriptions and project updates.

Note: All images at the highest resolution that we have available may be found here. YES! ALL OF THEM. It's one-stop shopping. Of course, if you are looking for specific images and you think we may not have posted the latest and greatest versions yet (a possibility) you should feel free to contact us.

Image credits
We rely on the kindness and generousity of the designers who volunteer their time with us. They put countless hours into preparing drawings, renderings and documenting their project. For that reason, we require that all images we provide for publication include design and/or photo credits. Yes, strong language, we know. However, this is important to our designers and so it is important to us. These credits will be provided along with the image and a caption. If they are not, contact us.

We also ask that as you are writing or thinking about the layout of your piece that you recognize our designers' work. Often readers get confused and think that Architecture for Humanity has designed a given project, when in fact the design work was provided pro bono by a firm or individual designer and we supported the project in other ways.

Be generous
If you care about community design and would like to help us continue to create opportunities for architects to volunteer their services, please provide a call for donations or a link to our site in your piece. All that time you put into making your story as compelling as possible does no good if people don't know how to get involved and support good design.

Architecture for Humanity would like to thank Galloway Media Group for their incredible dedication in providing pro bono media relations and support.
