'Post-development' design practice(s); making and unmaking of communities within post-conflict Rwanda

Building upon 5 years of Rwanda based architectural practice and research this proposal will: examine inherited concepts of ‘modernity’ that underpin urban policy in Rwanda; question these in light of current design trends of ‘modern’ architectural practice entrenched within development/NGO cultures; and posit alternatives to these by working with a marginalised, low-income community in Rwanda. The latter theme will be explored through a settlement-led design project.
