The Architects’ Project is an autonomous initiative continuously engaging with industry experts, academics and the community to deliver a wide range of activities and services. Our main aim is to empower the built environment community towards better ways of developing the environment and society. We use /tap to experiment with architecture as a subject that can be translated into a tool for development.
The initiative focuses on advancing the cause of context-specific architectural learning and practices using ‘bottom-up’ approaches to empower the design and built environment community.
/tap facilitates critical thinking and critical writing, the culture of making, and the application of sustainable methods in the built environment. We are currently made up of individual volunteers. We use our main platform tap:Exchange to organise and deliver research and design-led programmes at both public and private venues, and we use learning, events, live projects and exhibitions to engage with the community.

We have been hosted by and collaborated with the Africa Centre London, London Metropolitan University, the Architects Registration Council of Ghana, Agbogbloshie Makerspace Platform, and others.
