The Architecture Kenya team paid a visit to the exhibition of the University of Nairobi Towers competition. Architects were all out to impress with models that must have cost a fortune to build. A limit was fixed to the number of sheets that any presenting firm would submit, this was capped at 8 A1 size layouts.

From our visit, made right after the award ceremony, we managed to capture the following images of the actual drawings pinned up and models presented:-

  1. Image 13 from the top – This proposal seems to have presented the best attempt at showing sensitivity to the existing elements in terms of character. The winning design may have however presented the maximum spaces hence making more economic sense to the client.

  2. the winning model actually deserves it because with the proposals that I saw, especially the one where the whole lighting of the building (equivalent to 15% of the total power needed to run the building) to be provided by solar energy, i think thats really an awesome move that gears towards Kenya transforming to the use of green energy.
