Prof. Miho Mazereeuw was invited to speak at LIMAPOLIS 2016, an international workshop in Lima, Peru. 

Lima became the laboratory of housing for disadvantaged sector between the 1950s and 1970, Some notable examples of that can be seen in the publications of John Turner and PREVI International Competition, However despite this lack of safe housing is a critical issue facing the city today. LIMAPOLIS is a platform for theoretical reflection, debate and an opportunity to project the ideas for safe housing on the slopes of peripheral Lima. As a part of the conference, Claudia Bode, Research affiliate with the Risk Lab, also ran a workshop with students from several universities from Latin American to brainstorm ideas for solutions to the housing challenge of Lima
