Designing and Building in Central and East Africa

Article in Architectural Record

I recently had the opportunity to write a small piece about my work in Central and East Africa for Architectural Record, one of the leading voices in the architecture field in the United States.

In the article, I strive to explain how the IRC’s largest “good governance” program in the DR Congo is an appropriate model for development in rural Africa.  This is not only because it promotes unity and interaction with local government ministries towards responsible development.  The Tuungane program, from the perspective of an architect, creates relationships that put local populations in the position of a client; as apposed to that of a recipient or beneficiary.

I hope you enjoy the article.  Any comments that you can post at the bottom of the article would be much appreciated.  I look forward to responding.
