changing the culture of architecture to be more inclusive, appropriate and sustainable
Architecture Sans Frontières – UK (ASF-UK) aims to make community and international development issues integral to the practice and teaching of architecture. We strive to make architecture relevant to the world’s majority – people who are marginalised or living in poverty.
