The Armenian Relief and Development Association (ARDA) is partnering with Form Found Design to eradicate temporary housing in the country of Armenia. Using advanced technology and local resources (materials & labor) we are providing efficient and dignified housing solutions for the families most in need.

Lumber is scarce in Armenia, and wood is susceptible to termite and fire damage. Steel is fire & termite resistant and performs well in earthquake-prone regions. Steel is also easily accessible in Armenia. ARDA is employing modern technologies to come up with cost effective solutions. One of which is the FrameCAD Machine, which forms, punches, labels, and cuts custom, steel studs.
