Clerkenwell Presents: The Huts by Architecture for Humanity

Architecture for Humanity has created four specially designed huts for ‘Clerkenwell Presents’ at Clerkenwell Design Week

A micro village of four structures designed and built by volunteers is dotted around Clerkenwell and explore ideas such as wasted water, reusing reclaimed fabric and materials, upcycling and community gardens.

Architecture for Humanity is an architectural charity that works in in disaster relief across the world and helps provides expertise and solutions to humanitarian crises.
