Brinda Somaya – APAF – Coexist

This episode of Hearing Architecture is part of our continued collaboration with the Asia Pacific Architecture Festival otherwise known as APAF. The theme of the festival this year is “co-operate, co-design, and co-exist”. In this episode, we’re focusing on the word “co-exist” and how architects are bringing their clients and communities into the design process with them. Our guest in this episode is Brinda Somaya of SNK Architects in India who is a leader in an emerging form of participatory design that breaks down parts of the traditional hierarchy that separates architects from the end-users.
