Architektur ohne Grenzen Austria promotes responsible humanitarian architecture. Three projects on three continents are on show that engage innovatively with an interdisciplinary network of planners and experts. The Norwegian office TYIN tegnestue Architects presents its work in disadvantaged regions of Thailand, Sumatra and Uganda. In a similar approach to the AoGA’s, the path to self-help is key.
