Article 25 (initially Architects for Aid) was founded by Maxwell Hutchinson in 2006, the broadcaster and past president of RIBA. Caught up in the Indian Ocean Tsunami in 2004, Mr Hutchinson recognised the potential impact the built environment could have on saving lives and preventing natural hazards from turning into full-blown disasters. We have worked on over 85 projects in 34 countries around the world to benefit some of the world’s most vulnerable societies. Norman Foster, founder and chairman of Foster & Partners, who responsible for some of the world’s most recognisable buildings, is now Article 25’s patron.
