Developing Architecture is a book about the work of Architects without Borders Denmark in Sierra Leone in the years 2008-2013.
The book showcases five projects from several angles – the architecural, the tectonic, the social, and the academic, whilst providing a forum for the different participants’ points of view.Together, the projects show what can be – and has been, learnt about architecture and building when working in foreign contexts, in this case Sierra Leone.
What role does architecture have in a developing country? How do architects work outside their own culture? How does one manage building projects on foreign soil? How can iconic buildings promote social change?
