Sahmakum Teang Tnaut (STT) organized the workshop every year for Architecture Students from public and private universities in Cambodia to participate focused on finding community-driven intervention to adequate housing and sustainable development. The workshop will expose participants to the reality of life in urban poor communities and encourage them to use their skills address challenges identified.
The workshop will feature a combination of field visits and group work led by STT staff. Students will work directly with representatives of urban poor communities to identify challenges faced by the communities and develop design proposals (Alternative Plan) to address the issues. Following the 3-day workshop, participants are expected to develop and present their final proposal to community people, NGOs, and local authority. The three best designs will subsequently be awarded and exhibited at community.
