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 principal at MESHWORKS Architecture and Urbanism. He is a professional architect and urban researcher registered in South Africa. His doctoral research investigates the infrastructural, spatial and political implications of large science projects on landscapes and society.

Guy’s broader research considers the evolving relationships between urbanization, society, science, technology, and outer space. He has written on these and other themes for numerous publications including Folio (forthcoming 2018), Perspecta, Scenario Journal, The Architectural Review, City Journal, Canadian Architect, and Architecture South Africa. He has also written in popular media on cities and architecture. In 2015, Guy co-edited the book ‘Movement Johannesburg’, and has authored chapters in other edited volumes. In the upcoming academic year, Guy will co-edit New Geographies 11 (forthcoming 2019).

Guy works commonly in multidisciplinary teams, and has been instrumental in award-winning architectural, research and graphic design projects. He has most recently been employed as a researcher at LSE Cities, a lecturer at the University of the Witwatersrand, a researcher at the Gauteng City-Region Observatory, and a Teaching Fellow at the GSD. He has also been a guest lecturer and critic at numerous institutions.

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.

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.
