This website is a selection of diverse design, writing and research projects that Guy has been involved in since 2007.

While all three project categories involve design, writing and research these are categorised according to the specific focus areas of each project.





Guy Trangoš is Doctor of Design student at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, a professional architect and urban researcher. His work explores a range of urban concerns with particular focus on cities of the global south. This includes public space, transportation, urban form, and processes of urban change and socio-economic marginalization. He has explored these themes through exhibitions, journal articles, media articles, book contributions, and his own book ‘Movement Johannesburg’ co-edited with Zahira Asmal (2015).

Guy holds a MSc. in City Design and Social Science from the London School of Economics and Political Science, and a Master of Architecture (Professional) from the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg. Before studying at the GSD, Guy worked as a researcher at the Gauteng City-Region Observatory, a researcher at LSE Cities, a sessional lecturer at the University of the Witwatersrand, and a guest lecturer and critic at numerous other institutions. In 2011 he was selected to participate in the Gwangju Biennale Foundation’s International Curatorial Course.

In parallel to his research, Guy remains a very active designer. He has been involved in a number of architectural projects and competitions, from the Freedom Park Museum in Pretoria while at Mashabane Rose Architects, to strategizing small-scale interventions in underserviced urban environments while at 26’10 south Architects. His graphic design portfolio is also extensive, with competition-winning work, document and exhibition designs, and website overhauls.
