doung anwar jahangeer
doung is a kreole-Mauritian-born, living in Durban, South Africa. He is an architect. He is not an architect. His experience of the ‘profession’ led him to broaden his definition of architecture focusing on space - an architecturewithoutwalls. In 2000, doung conceptualised and implemented the ‘CityWalk’ initiative as a way of directly engaging and observing the flux and mutability his adopted city. It now includes 13 major cites internationally. His work is multi-media including live performance, film/video, sculpture, installation and architecture. He has instigated projects with organisations and artists internationally of diverse nature including site responsive architectural installations that engages the urban fabric often in an openly critical and sometimes provocative manner. In 2008 he co-founded dala an NPO which engages art architecture for socio-spatial justice. He recently published in Urban Future MANIFESTOS (Hatje Cantz 2010) along Ai Wei Wei, Saskia Saken, Edward Soja, AbdouMaliq Simone , Michael Sorkin and Lebbeus woods amongst others.
