Teaching and capacity building

I have been tutoring and running courses on architectural and urban design in different Universities. Some were run as a traditional design studio where student have to respond to a design brief. Other courses (as Street Life Studies) are about post-occupancy activities and understanding of how users adapt the environment.

Street Life Studies

Street Life Studies is an annual workshop that examines and documents the use of public street spaces in cities around the world. Students observe place; as people, behaviours, systems, and spaces in both their formal and informal expressions.

Capacity building

Often projects have a component that includes training of workers and community members. I have organized and run courses on different topics related to construction and disaster preparedness.
