Local Vs Global

In Partnership With:

ASF International Workshop Ghana 2011

In a rapidly developing country at what cost do visions for a modern global society come?
In this two week workshop, open to all built environment professionals and post graduate/masters students interested in sustainable development, we will explore how a rapidly developing country such as Ghana, is increasingly turning its back on local construction, in favor of western principles perceived as the vision for a modern globalised society, and try and discover the effects that this is having. The concentrated two week workshop will compare traditional and contemporary construction practice in Ghana and consider the social, economic and environmental impact that the changing practices are having. The outcome of the workshop will be a design and construction practicum based around a synthesis of local and global visions for a sustainable future.
