Sierra Morena School Project site viewI now find myself past the half-way mark of my Design Fellowship with Architecture for Humanity-Bogotá. Personally and professionaly, I have had many rich experiences since my last update – projects have progressed at the office and new opportunities have presented themselves. Just yesterday, Ricardo was approached with a chance to partner with the Colombian Red Cross for rebuild efforts in Haiti. I couldn´t be more excited for him and this collaboration for our chapter. In Haiti, Ricardo will develop a design solution that will address the need for temporary shelters in the damaged region – I can not wait for his return when he can fill me in on everything!

Confessions of a Design Fellow - Número Uno

I can hardly believe it myself, but I now find myself one month into my Design Fellowship with AfH-Bogotá! It has been a large adjustment moving from Canada to Colombia, but I the people I have met here are very kind, the city is amazing and I am feeling settled into my new home.

I have loved being involved in the work at AfH-Bogotá. In my first month I have been collaborating with other members of our team to develop a corporate image for our chapter. It has been great creating a new logo and putting together a design manual; I am very grateful for the experience as I have learned a lot about the power of decision-making. Our website is currently in the works and should be up and running by the 1st of March.
