In this book, nine authors explore the DesignBuild learning method within the postcolonial context. Using concrete examples, the hands-on approach is critically examined and evaluated. One focus is on the overseas engagements of European and US students, who actively apply their newly acquired knowledge in cultures foreign to them. The authors also document and analyze projects by students from Latin America, Asia and Africa, who use the method, among other approaches, as a field of experimentation to question colonial norms. In addition to the students’ viewpoints, the contributions also address those of the community, educators, and supporters, thereby specifying the problems and challenges faced by all those involved.
