Challenging practice is now online… August 30, 2012

Challenging Practice: Essentials for the Social Production of Habitat is a project developed by an Architecture Sans Frontières partnership funded by the European Commission under the LLP Leonardo Da Vinci programme to develop a training that encourages architects and urban designers to engage in the production of habitat for the world’s most vulnerable groups. This training has been developed as ASF strongly believes that the construction of social facilities for the benefit of the most underprivileged sectors of the world’s population requires a broader approach from built environment professionals, and a critical revision of the focus and ways of operating that we are all exhorted to accept during our studies and working lives. The final goal is to widen the scope of architecture, so that it becomes more of a gathering of knowledge that allows to make the built environment available to all, rather than a limited sector dedicated to building for the creditworthy. There is nothing fundamentally new in this approach, only an essential change in the way we position ourselves.
