InfUr- Seminar and Book Launch with Kim Dovey — The Atlas of Informal Settlement

This seminar took place on Thursday 19th October 2023.

This seminar celebrates the launch of the Atlas of Informal Settlement by Kim Dovey, Matthijs van Oostrum, Tanzil Shafique, Ishita Chatterjee and Elek Pafka. The book is a comparative study of the morphogenesis of 51 contemporary settlements across the globe. It shows how settlement morphology adapts to different contexts of political economy, topography, culture, climate and land tenure; revealing a complex range of actors, design processes and formal outcomes. The seminar will be followed by a launch of the book and an exhibition in the MSD atrium with Julie Willis and Dan Hill.
