Doung Anwar Jahangeer

Doung Anwar Jahangeer is a Mauritian-born artist/architect/activist and is based in Durban, South Africa. He has redefined restrictive and traditional notions of architecture by conceptualising and implementing an experiential, group participation initiative, "The City Walk". This echoes his philosophy of a united space that exists without boundaries between members of society and their surroundings; "an architecture without walls". Collaborating and working in multiple mediums such as performance, film, sculpture and installation, Jahangeer continues to integrate and interact with the public in the urban domain. Doung won the inaugural South African Award for the design of a mobile fold away shop for hawkers at the 2009 Design Indaba in Cape Town, South Africa. He co-founded an NPO, dala, which encompasses art and architecture for social justice.
