Update: Since this article was originally published, the trustee in the bankruptcy proceedings of Architecture for Humanity has dismissed Kate Stohr (in January 2017) and three members of the board of directors (Niama Jacobs, Taylor Milsal, and Cliff Curry in August 2016) from the suit mentioned below.

After 16 years of operation, in 2015, nonprofit organization Architecture for Humanity (AfH) disbanded and filed for bankruptcy. While it was seen as an unfortunate end for the original vision, the over 60 individual chapters were able to move on from the situation, reorganizing themselves under the blanket of Open Architecture Collaborative (OAC) earlier this year.

But apparently, the AfH saga is not done yet. As reported by Architectural Record, AfH board members are now facing a $3 million lawsuit for alleged mismanagement of funds. Along with founders Cameron Sinclair and Kate Stohr, who were paid employees, the suit is also filed against the 10 volunteer members of the board of directors, which includes prominent New York architect Toshiko Mori and Clark Manus, the former president of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
