This website is a selection of projects since 2007.

While all three project categories span design, writing and research, projects are categorised according to their specific purpose.





Guy Trangoš is Doctor of Design student at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and a partner in Meshworks Architecture and Urbanism. He is a professional architect and urban researcher registered in South Africa. His doctoral research explores global megascience projects and other zones of urban exception as related to urbanisation processes.

Concurrent and previous research interests include public space, transportation, urban form, and processes of urban change and socio-economic marginalization predominantly within the global south. 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. Prior to 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.

Guy 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.
