Symbiosis of African traditional design and modern technology.
What inspired you to enter this special competition to create a modern architectural language for Africa?
I am a student, and so for me it was the opportunity to experiment. The process of creating this project was part of my training. I was interested in exploring the culture of African countries and the peoples of Africa, the nature Africa.
What did you find most interesting or challenging during the research and development of your prototype?
The most difficult part in the development of my prototype was to create home elements, that would reflect the essence of Africa and would be appropriate for the weather, combined with the landscapes.
Why do you believe African homeowners will be interested in building a home such as the one you have submitted today?
I believe African homeowners will be interested in building this home because my house looks modern, suitable for living in a climate of Africa, and reflective of the traditions and culture of Africa, it is a reflection of the essence of Africa. This house is suitable for large families. The local population but also people from other continents will choose this house.
