Project Info

In conjunction with expedition and community design projects in the developing world, the research aims to re-examine and re-interpret vernacular culture, social structure, spatial representation, use of material, construction techniques, and environmental response, to propose architectural designs that adapt to new roles yet sustain traditional culture. In collaboration with engineering product design, the research also adds to the interdisciplinary approach to studying and validating participatory design methods.
