Tomà Berlanda is Professor of Architecture at the School of Architecture, Planning and Geomatics at the University of Cape Town. His research interests focus on the implications that can be drawn from a non-stereotypical reading of the African city and the practice of architecture in non-Western urban settings and landscapes. He has co-founded asa studio and astudio.space, two practices that have produced internationally recognised design work. His collaborative projects are the result of an engagement with the role of quality design for underprivileged communities, an include school buildings, early childhood development centres, and health facilities. He is the author of Architectural Topographies (Routledge, 2014), and, together with K.H. Smith, of Interpreting Kigali (University of Arkansas press, 2018).
