The construction team of a.gor.a Architects grew over 5 years from 5 to 30 people thanks to the cooperation with migrant vocational learning centers and local organisations such as Gyaw Gyaw and Estudio Cavernas. Many in the team are still today in Myanmar working with our friends at Doh Eain. A few decided to go back to the Thai-Myanmar border with their families after the projects in Yagon were completed.
