The panel discussions held at the meeting are summarised and scripts available for download Here.
The Regional Community Architects Meeting which ACHR organized in Chiang Mai (June 12-16, 2010) may very well have been the biggest-yet gathering of young COMMUNITY ARCHITECTS in Asia. 125 people joined the meeting, hosted by Chiang Mai University's Architecture Faculty, and held (at least initially) in the leafy, open-aired "Umbrella Courtyard".
Present were community architects and planners - mostly youngish and idealistic, but there were also some mid-career and senior community architects from around Asia, with a few friends from southern Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Colombia. There were also community leaders from several Asian countries who are veterans of their own community design and construction projects, and a team from the Chang Chumchon community builders network in Thailand.
