Experimenting with the varied contexts of work, living, education and making/producing throughout Africa, DK Osseo-Asare and Yasmine Abbas – both members of the Architecture and Engineering Design Faculty at Pennsylvania State University – have co-founded and developed the Agbogbloshie Makerspace Platform (AMP). They outline the background and functioning of this enabling system that encourages participants to use the low-tech resources around them to build their skills and change their environments.
