Speaker information

Caroline Newton, DPU
Barbara Lipietz, DPU

This event seeks to showcase the long-standing and multi-faceted collaboration around the co-production of informal settlement upgrading in South East Asia between two Development Planning Unit (DPU) MSc programmes, the Asian Coalition of Housing Rights (ACHR), the Community Architects Network (CAN) and the communities with which they work.

The event will present the methodologies developed by the partnership in the contexts of field trips and studio work: participatory design, community mapping, strategic action planning, scenario development and new media to co-produce knowledge and disseminate findings. The exhibitors will also present the book produced by the first group of ACHR/DPU Junior Professionals Programme interns - detailing their experiences and learnings over a 6 month internship in Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and the Philippines (using multi-media) and launch the new call for participants in the Junior Professionals internship programme for 2014/2015.
