Dalhousie University’s School of Architecture hosted Afield co-directors Kai Wood Mah and Patrick Lynn Rivers on October 31 for a midday lecture titled "Development through Design."
Mah and Rivers used their presentation to offer insight on the relationship between international development and design. They did this by discussing a series of Afield projects with special emphasis on Afield’s Democratic Crèche project. Research-creation methodologies were presented as a means to assess international development projects as well as a way to innovate outside neoliberalism’s very particular “metrics.”
