Herkes İçin Mimarlık (Architecture for All)
Herkes için Mimarlık (HiM) is an association from Istanbul, that facilitates democratic and collaborative design processes between government representatives, professionals, and citizens.
The association focuses on creative ways to raise awareness about social challenges and tries to suggest solutions to social problems through architecture and space design. HiM works together with communities in the rural and urban areas of Turkey for women’s empowerment, supporting local economies, and resolving the basic spatial needs of educational institutions mostly through the functionalization of existing buildings. The association also assists activists and civil society organizations that are working with disadvantaged and underrepresented communities on issues of gender, early childhood education, disability rights, equality for women and children, and refugees.
