Architecture for Humanity to Open Makibiz in Ishinomaki City

Architecture for Humanity announced that it has opened a business development center in Ishinomaki City, which was devastated by the East Japan Great Earthquake and Tsunami in March 2011. The center, named MakiBiz to reflect its location and its focus on nurturing small businesses and entrepreneurship in Ishinomaki City, is funded by a $2 million grant from The Prudential Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation supported by U.S.-based Prudential Financial Inc. The funding for MakiBiz was part of a JPY 500 million pledge by The Prudential Foundation to support relief, recovery and rebuilding efforts in the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Other partners in the MakiBiz initiative include MAKOTO, ETIC Engineering and Flight. The center will give small business owners design and construction services, business development referrals and access to construction capital to support efforts to create an even stronger business environment in Ishinomaki City than that which existed before the 2011 disaster.

Architecture for Humanity Announces Strategic Partnership with The Center for Green Schools, U.S. Green Building Council

Architecture for Humanity announced their strategic partnership with the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Together the two groups hope to join others in eliminating nation's deferred school maintenance bill through implementation of school improvement projects, addressing financing and providing tools to educators. The report estimates that $271 billion is needed to bring existing school buildings up to code -- double that amount if it is to modernize schools - and that further research is needed to clarify how and where this investment should be targeted. The Center for Green Schools and Architecture for Humanity joined forces in 2012 as part of a collaborative effort to create and apply resources that show how communities can make high impact building improvements in their schools.
