The World Architecture Workshop (WAW) has been dispatched to various corners of the globe to conduct hypothetical design experiments in solving intractable urban problems.

We have been running WAW with masters students, academics and professionals from RMIT University, Tohoku University, Miyage University and l’école Nationale Supérieure d’Montpelier since 2002.

Students and academics from each university propose hypothetical design experiments which are then presented to design professionals, communities, authorities and the press.

In some instances, these lead to planning changes and built outcomes in the areas in question.

Workshops have been conducted in Sendai, Sommières, Detroit, Phillip Island, Villeneuvette, Réunion Island, Barcelona and Mildura.
