Brazilian anthropologist Teresa Caldeira describes peripheral urbanization as a bottom-up way of producing cities that is pervasive in the Global South. Using peripheral urbanization as a theoretical framework, this chapter analyzes the results of three housing design studios, organized by the group Architecture & Dwelling at Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands), developed in collaboration with partners in India, Bangladesh and Ethiopia. The pedagogic strategies of the Global Housing design studios are focused on exploring the design decision-making process as a locus to address the different temporalities of the architectural project and negotiate cultural differences. This pedagogical strategy offers a contribution to decolonize the curriculum of architectural education in the Global South, exploring critically the interplay between accommodating indigenous knowledges and tackling the challenges of planetary urbanization.
