PROJECT SUMMARY

Co-op Capacity Building

Community farming and market hub

The master plan focuses on rapid urban growth and responds to the needs of the predominantly young population, establishing participatory processes with local cooperatives and stakeholders.

Working with the topography, the scheme includes a collective hill-farming program, community buildings, and a market. The plan respects the Rwandan tradition, improved by a contemporary sense of public space aesthetics.
