Spring 2019 | ARCH 2854 Sophomore Design Studio, Georgia Tech.

Posted by

I taught second year undergraduate design studio coordinated by Keith Kaseman as Visiting Assistant Professor. The semester long project was the design of a droneport for Mwanza in Tanzania, and the greater region of Lake Victoria in Africa. Based on guidelines from the Lake Victoria Challenge Trial Symposium, this new building typology is envisioned as a totally new type of iconic civic space; a beacon of local pride that is empathetic, women-centric, and serves as a hub for stable energy, internet, and digital fabrication. Droneports are therefore not objects, nor buildings, but rather places in and of themselves.
