Reflecting on the DPU and Architecture Sans Frontières-UK Collaboration

Reflecting on the DPU and Architecture Sans Frontières-UK Collaboration

The event reflects on the partnership between The Bartlett Development Planning Unit and Architecture Sans Frontières –UK, which has contributed to shaping ASF’s participatory design programme: Change by Design. This collaboration has developed through a series of action-learning workshops, publications and public events focusing on participatory design in the context of informal settlements upgrading. This work has informed teaching at DPU, and has been disseminated through conferences and symposia such as UN-Habitat World Urban Forum in 2012.

The event also considers Change by Design within wider debates on the thinking and practice of participatory design; to initiate conversations to influence the forthcoming 2014 World Urban Forum networking event on ‘Participatory Design and Planning for Equitable Cities’ coordinated by the Change by Design team; and to reflect on the approach of DPU to partnerships in the field of international development.
