À propos

Kounkuey Design Initiative (KDI) partners with residents of impoverished areas to create

low-cost, high-impact built environments (Productive Public Spaces) that transform communities, improving the residents' daily lives and future prospects. Begun in 2006, KDI is an innovative international partnership specializing in the practices of architecture, landscape architecture, engineering, and urban planning. KDI believes that participatory planning and design are key to sustainable development. By working collaboratively with communities from conception through implementation we build on their ideas, enhance them with technical knowledge and design innovation, and connect them to extant resources. In doing so, KDI empowers communities to advocate for themselves and address the major physical, social and economic challenges they face.

PRODUCTIVE PUBLIC SPACEs [PPS] are:

1 Formerly unusable and sometimes unsafe areas that become active public spaces such as community meeting areas, vegetable gardens, recreation spaces, and places of micro-enterprise, that are paired with basic infrastructure (e.g. sanitation, bridges, water)

2 Conceived, constructed, and managed by the people who use them, in collaboration with local and international partners

3 Income-generating, socially constructive, and sustainable

4 Projects that would otherwise not be realized through traditional channels

5 Targeted areas that employ strong design concepts to create beautiful spaces

6 Catalysts by which communities improve the social, economic, and environmental lives of their residents
