Design as Activism: Community Upgrading
Workshop and Design Competition
18-20 October 2013

Sahmakum Teang Tnaut invites Architecture Students from public and private universities in Cambodia to participate in a workshop focused on finding community-driven solutions 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 lectures, field visits, and group work led by STT staff and guest lecturers. Students will work directly with representatives of urban poor communities to identify challenges faced by the communities, and develop design proposals to address the issues. Following the 3-day workshop, participants are expected to develop their proposal for final submission on Nov. 15. The three best designs will subsequently be awarded and all submissions will feature in an exhibition in January 2014.

To apply, please e-mail with your CV and letter of motivation. Further information can also be obtained by calling 089 666 037/ 070 46 34 54.

Applications close Oct. 15, 2013.

Note: The workshop is free of charge but spaces are limited. STT will cover all costs related to the workshop.
