Recently a group of local architects and AIA Austin’s Design Committee organized the Tiny Victories Competition to design micro-housing units for Mobile Loaves and Fishes’ Community First! Village. Architects from firms across Austin participated with great interest. A 27-acre master planned community opened in 2015 to house about 200 homeless people in a healthy and holistic environment they can call home. Many of these new micro-shelters will be those designed by Austin architects and other design-minded people from the community.
The idea that a well-built environment can shape and enrich the quality of our lives is at the heart of the AFA mission.DONATE NOW
