In 2013, the Bartlett Development Planning Unit (DPU) launched a pilot internship programme in collaboration with the Asian Coalition for Housing Rights and the Community Architects Network. Six DPU alumni spent six months working with communities in Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam, supporting  mapping, planning and design processes and discussions around issues of housing and land rights. Through this experience they shared their lives, perspectives, values and stories with communities across South-East Asia. A collection of essays recounting their experiences entitled 'Grounding Knowledge: reflections on community-driven development in South East Asia' is now available online. For more information on the scheme, please visit the DPU website.
