During the summer of 2020, SCI-Arc and Emil Seehusen [SCI-Arc EDGE MS Design Theory & Pedagogy Alumnus and research fellow] hosted ‘Itinerant Platform’, a research and design workshop co-produced by students and faculty from three participating universities: SCI-Arc, Abaarso Tech University, and Copenhagen University. The workshop established a digital educational platform between architectural institutions in the Global South and North, combining research on housing from three continents and three distinct urban conditions in Los Angeles, Copenhagen, and the Horn of Africa. Workshop participants conducted collaborative research and engaged in a collective discourse and design process. This project was supported by SCI-Arc’s Research Department and partially funded by a grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation.
