Development Planning Unit
Alexandre Apsan Frediani (London, UK)
Alex is a lecturer in Community-led Development in the Global South at the Development Planning Unit. He is also an associate of Architecture Sans Frontieres-UK, organizing for the last two years workshops on participatory design in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil (city where he comes from originally). His posts will be drawing from past and current work to explore the role of the practitioner and researcher in ‘development’. Alex is keen to provide some short insights on his experiences to hopefully generate discussions about why and how we should engage in this field so called development.
