The San Francisco-based nonprofit Architecture for Humanity has shuttered its office near Union Square, and all staff were laid off January 1. Founded by Cameron Sinclair and Kate Stohr in 1999, the organization ran a largely volunteer network of architects who responded to disasters and humanitarian crises around the world, with 59 chapters in 16 countries. The board had trouble raising funds to keep the organization's slate of programming—which included local projects, such as the Portola pocket park at right—afloat. [SFGate]
