Please come and celebrate the completion of the Under the BQE, a community planning initiative. The site consists of 17 blocks of space on Park Avenue between Steuben and Navy Streets under the Brooklyn Queens Expressway in Brooklyn, New York. It stretches over multiple neighborhoods in Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, and Wallabout districts. The project included working with community members and managing design charettes to evaluate how to make the area more safe in terms of traffic and lighting and prepare recommendations for change.

On August 6, the Tropical Storm Haikui brought two days of heavy rains that caused massive flooding and landslides throughout the capital city of Manila in the Philippines. Over 800,000 people were evacuated from their homes and 250,000 people have moved into emergency shelters. It is estimated that 2 million people live in informal settlements in high risk areas along river beds that are prone to flooding.
Architecture for Humanity is committed to helping communities in Manila rebuild and prevent future disasters. We need your help.
