To extend the impact and network, South of North teamed up together with the global organisation Architecture Sans Frontières International (ASF Int.) to give out an award, this time with the theme "Learning South of North".

As the South of North network itself, ASF Int Award was founded in the purpose of sharing the most efficient solutions developed by architects globally to the many social, environmental and economic challenges facing the built environment. The goal of the award is to promote those solutions among the design profession and the general public, which will encourage an exchange of ideas and challenge the profession to develop the construction of social facilities and infrastructure for the benefit of the most vulnerable sectors of the world’s population.

On Thursday, June 18, the 2015 Prizes were awarded at ASF Award Ceremony & Discussion "Learning South of North" in Lalitpur, Nepal.

There were feature presentations by:

  • Sahjabin Kabir, Tanzia Islam - "Deyalkotha"
  • Guruprasad Rane, ASF India - "Activity Center for Chilla"
  • Beatrice de Carli, ASF UK - "Change by Design"

And a panel discussion "Learning South of North" supported by Inari Virkkala, Ukumbi Finland and Rune Asholt Arkitekter Uden Grænser Denmark. Warm thanks also for Anna Synderå from ASF Sweden for the support with the event!
