Our mission

Emergency Architecture & Human Rights (EAHR) was founded in October 2015 in Copenhagen, Denmark, with the mission to explore how architecture can help build resilience in vulnerable communities, create spatial solutions that strengthen local livelihoods, and stimulate development before and after emergencies.


Through educational activities, co-design, and consultancy, our goal is to encourage broad participation, creating safe spaces that enable community members to be an integral and active part of the decision-making processes that impact their own communities.


We believe in an architecture that work with a for local communities. An architecture that counters discrimination in our cities and the built environment. We work through architecture to promote human rights and taking steps towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development goals for 2030.
