Architects Commit to Sharing Resources in Wake of Typhoon Haivan

13 November, 2013


The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has issued a statement of support for the central Philippines following Typhoon Haivan's devastation:

“Architects and AIA members everywhere extend our heartfelt condolences and prayers to the many people affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines and elsewhere in the Pacific,” AIA president Mickey Jacob, FAIA, said.

“Through our national Disaster Assistance Committee, the American Institute of Architects has reached out to the International Union of Architects (UIA), Architects Regional Council of Asia (arcasia), and other professional associations in larger regions to offer any support we can to the United Architects of the Philippines (UAP). Additionally, we have been in close contact with our partner Architecture for Humanity, which is in the early stages of its response efforts.

“AIA members are passionate advocates for training and education to improve a community’s disaster resilience, response, and recovery. The AIA is committed to sharing resources, knowledge, and expertise to help those affected by Typhoon Haivan’s devastation and rebuild their lives and livelihoods.

“For the moment, though, as initial relief work is being performed in the aftermath of the storm to stabilize daily life, the most important thing we can do is to contribute to organizations who are actively responding to this crisis. We encourage everyone to make a contribution to relief groups including Architecture For Humanity, or any other organizations you know and trust.”
