About the Book
The basic pedagogical intent of the program was to enhance cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary awareness, collaboration and learning in the students and faculty of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Planning in both the University of Arizona and the Sultan Qaboos University. We trust that the processes employed and the community development solutions generated during this complex and multi-layered project will eventually gain relevance and bear witness in subsequent research and professional work of all student and faculty participants.
For the past thirty years the Tejido Group has developed into an interdisciplinary and collaborative applied research program in which faculty and professionals in Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Planning work side by side with University graduate and undergraduate students in an apprenticeship-style professional learning environment. We are an international experience and have collaborated on projects throughout four continents: North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia.
