Roots Architecture is an international workshop aimed at making the connection between humanitarian, emergency and other basic architecture provision in the developing world, and that of the world music community, as showcased at Womad. The idea is to inspire both the general public and the architectural and built environment communities both in terms of materials and projects .
The workshop is organized by Fourth Door Research in association with Tangentfield. There will be running workshops through the course of the festival, along with talks, an information bazaar and internet links with various projects around the world. The workshops are being led by experienced professionals in the field, including Architecture Sans Frontier UK, and the humanitarian architecture practice TYIN Tegnestue from Norway.
