|Architekten über Grenzen|
Architekten über Grenzen e.V. (Architects without Borders) was set up to help small aid organizations and other NGOs without planning and building staff of their own to implement their construction projects. As a member of an international network, the association seeks to put at the disposal of the above organizations the experience their specialized planners have gained while working abroad. It also provides advise as to the funding of projects. If required, it puts interested parties in contact with in-country planners. Where this is not feasible or only possible to a limited extent, the association may also dispatch into the region in question specialists of its own. Thus, the realization, even under adverse conditions, of important projects, such as clinics or schools, is to be facilitated.
|BDA - Bund Deutscher Architekten|
In 1903, the Bund Deutscher Architekten (German Institute of Architects) was established as an association of independent architects with the aim of highlighting, in the face of quality decline of the built environment, the objectives and contents of architecture.

The BDA promotes:
• High standards of planning and construction that reflect the architect’s responsibility vis-à-vis society and the environment,
• The reputation of this intellectual profession,
• The competitiveness of its members as independent architects.
