Believing that the development of our built environment should be as it has always been, a collaborative effort between the community members and designated master builders, Nmadili Okwumabua will deliver a ground breaking online lecture on the evolution and transformation of African culture, aesthetics, spirituality, materials, design philosophies, and the contemporary translation of these elements in today’s built environment. Creating a new pedagogy for teaching African centred architecture in the process, the lecture will chronicle emerging CPDI Africa narratives for development, supplicating collaboration from the design community at large for the accomplishment of its vision - to source tried and true African design philosophies and practices in sustainable design, science and technology, for the development of a holistic and eco friendly global built environment.
