Crafting spaces between Design and Futures: An analysis of the Agbogbloshie Makerspace Platform

To translate some of the learnings by AfriDesignX, Cher Potter, along with the architect/scholar DK Osseo-Asare and President Emeritus of the World Design Organisation Mugendi M’Rithaa published a journal article entitled ‘Crafting spaces between Design and Futures: An analysis of the Agbogbloshie Makerspace Platform’. The paper employs causal layered analysis (CLA) as a lens through which to analyse the ideologies and worldviews embodied in the “design future” postulated by the Agbogbloshie Makerspace Platform [AMP] in Accra, Ghana. AMP stands as an argument for both recycling and circularity in design.
