Mission Statement


Architects Without Borders - Seattle provides ecologically sensitive and culturally appropriate design assistance to communities in need.

Core Values

-Effective and appropriate design is vital to improving communities and the environment.
-Collaborative long-term relationships with communities are essential to providing effective design assistance.
-Exchange of knowledge and skills empowers both communities and designers.
-Interdisciplinary integrated design solutions maximize the positive impact of our projects.
-Volunteers are fundamental to our work.


Founded In 2005 by a group of Seattle architects and designers in response to the Asian Tsunami, Architects without Borders Seattle is part of an international coalition of designers committed to providing pro bono design services to communities in need.

Our projects are organized in three broad and often overlapping categories:
- International Community Development
- Local Community Development
- Disaster Recovery and Response

As a network of volunteer designers and builders we aspire to maintain as non-hierarchical an organization as possible. Our volunteers are the most essential components of our organization- each person donates valuable time and skills towards our shared projects and goals. We have created volunteer-staffed committees and project teams that promote and actuate our projects and activities.

I recently did an overhaul for their website, and they were just superb to work with. Clear and concise expectations, timely feedback. I am proud to have been a part of their organization and would still love to do so.
