What happens if you take the conceptual essence of a design that has worked well in one place and invest it in another? This is the scenario proposed by Berlin Transfer. Inverting the direction in which knowledge has been exported since colonial times, the book reveals the potential of architectural and urban design concepts from the Global South to inform unconventional approaches of urban development in the northern hemisphere. 

The first volume of the series, Learning from the Global South, investigates the architecture of big form, urban villages and special interest zones, inspired by iconic references of contemporary urban transformation located south of the equator.
