Architecture Sans Frontierès UK

Architecture Sans Frontières UK (ASF-UK) is a non-profit organization that aims to make community and international development issues integral to the practice and teaching of architecture. By running seminars, workshops and live projects, we strive to make architecture relevant to the world’s majority – people who are marginalised or living in poverty.

Our actions are structured into two main programmes: Change by Design and Resilience by Design. Change by Design explores participatory design and planning as a tool for advocacy and socio-spatial transformation in informal urban contexts. Resilience by Design addresses the need for bottom up sustainable development approaches in both rural and urban areas of the global south.

These are complemented by the crosscutting programme Challenging Practice – an independent-learning course that seeks to enable built environment professionals to engage reflexively with the challenges of international development.
