André Viljoen

André Viljoen is an architect and principal lecturer at the University of Brighton and, with Katrin Bohn, contributes to the work of Bohn&Viljoen Architects.

This book and the associated design concept had a significant international impact, resulting in invitations to consult, exhibit and lecture widely. In 2012, André jointly edited the book Sustainable Food Planning: Evolving theory and practice. This collection was the first of its kind to bring the disciplines of planning, design, public health and governance into dialogue to address the global challenge of food security.
