Self Made City - A talk by Kristien Ring

DSDHA recently hosted Kristien Ring from the Active Architecture Project based in Berlin, who visited the studio to deliver her lecture 'Self Made City'.

Kristien spoke about the the emerging movement of self-initiated building projects, that started in Berlin, but is now gaining significant attention in other cities, such as London. She spoke about the powers of self-initiated 'building groups' as an alternative mean to deliver high quality design in the built environment.
