Les Ateliers recherchent un assistant local à Cape Town, Afrique du Sud

As part of the organization of the upcoming international urban workshop in Cape Town, South Africa, Les Ateliers are looking for a Cape Town-based assistant to participate in the preparation of this workshop with our team from now to early October. Collective scientific preparation, conference organization and workshop facilitation are at the center of this mission.

Cape Town is one the South Africa's capital cities, the oldest city in the country, and the second largest with more than 4.5 millions of inhabitants. Its spectacular natural landscape including dramatic mountains and a long coastline has molded its development, as well as the historical heritage of the apartheid that stubbornly results in a segregated city and a sprawling urban form.

At the request of the City of Cape Town and with the support of the French Development Agency (AFD), Les Ateliers is organizing an international urban planning workshop in Cape Town in order to find innovative solutions and improve the City processes in the implementation of the main planning documents of the city, the Municipal and District Spatial Development Frameworks.

During this 5 days flash international workshop, 15 international and local participants (urban planners, architects, geographers, landscape designers, environmentalists, sociologists, economists ...) will take part in an intense collective and strategic work in three different teams.

At the end of the session, the participants will present their work in a Forum to a panel of local stakeholders, official, national and international experts.

Les Ateliers are looking for external support for the scientific preparation of this workshop. The assistant will be under the management of the director of project and the coordinator of Les Ateliers. He/she will be part of a team with them and the 2 scientific directors (pilots) of the workshop. The mission consists in 3 major tasks:

  • Diagnosis : Collecting resources and writing of the “Context Document”
