We Are OACny
OAC New York activates local, pro-bono creative professionals to deliver design and development solutions that actualize the potential of our local communities. Our volunteers work to build a more sustainable future across the five boroughs of New York City.
We believe that everyone deserves a well-designed environment. We strive to collaborate with local community organizations to develop and implement quality design solutions within their neighborhoods. We thrive when we bring together communities, like-minded organizations, and design professionals to implement the visions of New York City's neighborhoods.
The Data Shows:
A Global Network of Impact
This year, our global chapter has compiled visual data recognizing the accomplishments around the global Open Architecture Collaborative.
"In 2017 the Open Architecture Collaborative supported 21 chapters who hosted over 425 volunteers serving 94 nonprofit and community groups. Over 1,140 people have signed up to volunteer since we launched in March of last year, but those numbers are slowing down. 2017 saw a booming building economy and professionals with less time. When the economy dips, designers lose work and their jobs. But we get creative and volunteer to continue gaining knowledge and experience."
