History

Emergency Architecture & Human Rights (EAHR) was founded in October 2015 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

After the Indian Ocean earthquake in 2004, and the series of catastrophic tsunamis that followed, the team behind EAHR came together. We recognized that the profession of architecture had forgotten the most vulnerable people in our world. We saw the need to explore the significant impact architecture could have on building resilience and stimulating development before and after emergencies.

In the following years, EAHR has developed into a wider organization. We provide consultancy around the world, as well as creating educating frameworks and conducting research. We also host a range of workshops on architecture in humanitarian emergencies in universities around the world.

Furthermore, EAHR and its experienced team have completed various humanitarian construction projects.
