Paul Pholeros--architect & humanitarian--died this past Monday.  He was the co-founder and co-director of Healthabitat, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the health of disadvantaged communities through housing design strategies.  ARCHIVE Global was fortunate enough to collaborate with Paul on our projects in Haiti and Cameroon.  This is a huge loss for the architecture community and he will be deeply missed.
