The fire situation in northern California continues to spread at a  historical, catastrophic pace and all are feeling a bit helpless as to how to assist or alleviate those affected. Natural and man-made, the fires are destroying homes, towns, neighborhoods, and spirits are desperate and low.

It’s not enough to say we are sympathetic to the catastrophe. There is so much loss, it is hard to express and equally hard to know how to respond.

Nate Bisbee, an architect who usually attends Monterey Design Conference, was one of many who were unable to attend last weekend’s event. “The tension is palpable here in Santa Rosa, and with good reason,” he sent in an email. “My message to you now is—please think deeply—as you contemplate your practice and the architecture you aspire to create, please consider Northern California and how you might contribute to its recovery through your collective spirit and recovery.”

While it is too soon to begin rebuilding efforts, which will no doubt, be massive, and will call on all architects ready and willing to assist, the AIACC set up a donation fund for anyone to donate. Also, the fund was set up through the California Architect Foundation, so your donations are tax deductible.
