Doh Eain is a multi-discipline heritage-led placemaking social enterprise based in Yangon, Myanmar. In a world of rapid urbanisation, we want to make sure cities are places with identity, and that they are liveable, inclusive and sustainable. That is why we specialise in preserving heritage, improving public space, and organising activities that connect people to places.
Founded early 2017, our office brings together skills in community mapping, participatory design, restoration & construction, and cultural programming. Key in our approach are building owners and residents, with whom we work together closely in making explicit the value and potential of existing historical, cultural, social and natural assets in the city, and whom we make central agents in our design processes in order to ensure local ownership and impact.
Doh Eain is registered as a company and as a non-profit. We work on projects with clients and also realise our own projects financed by equity, loans and/or grants.
