Architetti senza frontiere

ASF Italia – Architetti Senza Frontiere Italian is non-profit organization, founded in 1998. Led by Camillo Magni, it promotes and realises projects where the communities are involved in the transformation processes. The activities are articulated in: Architecture for Development (actions to trigger operations directed towards a sustainable development and strengthening of local communities); Architecture for Training (actions to form people into capable workers in conditions of poverty and marginalization), Architecture for Debate (actions to raise awareness on the ethical responsibility regarding the relationship between the disciplines of space design and social shaping of the habitat).
Among the most recent works by ASF: the new secondary school in Roong, (Cambodia, 2014); the veterinary school in Rabuni (Algeria, 2007); the Center for the Artistic and Artisan Formation in Bobo Dioulasso (Burkina Faso, 2001). 
ASF Italy received the Mention of Honor at the Gold Medal for Italian Architecture 2015.
