The Middle Ground: Designing for Negotiability

(IN PROGRESS)

“If formality operates through the fixing of value, including the mapping of spatial value, then informality operates through the constant negotiability of value and the unmapping of space.” Roy (2003) in AlSayyad, Nezar, and Ananya Roy, Urban informality: Transnational perspectives from the middle East, latin America, and south Asia. Lexington Books, 2003.

I study design and informality focusing on communities who live on the margins.
