Andrew Heben is an urban planner, designer, and developer.
He is the author of Tent City Urbanism: From Self-Organized Camps to Tiny House Villages (2014), and the Village Collaborative was originally created to publish the book and network readers.
Many of the ideas within Tent City Urbanism have since been put into action through the co-founding of SquareOne Villages, a nonprofit based in Eugene, OR creating democratic communities with homes that are permanently affordable and environmentally sustainable.
As SquareOne's Project Director, Andrew has overseen the planning, design, and construction of three developments—Opportunity Village, (2013), Emerald Village (2017), Cottage Village (2019)—and is currently working on two more—Peace Village and Rosa Village. He has also consulted on dozens of other projects, and published the Village Toolbox (2016) to assist others in building more villages.
