TThe Architecture and Urban Design group addresses the challenges faced by informal settlements in the global south: social inequality, uneven distribution of resources, inadequate urban services. They tackle these urban phenomena and provide socially and ecologically sustainable design solutions for marginalized populations. The interrelated themes of water, sanitation and health remain central issues in slums today.
