Project Summary

Chicoco Radio

Community building designed for urban flooding

Chicoco Radio is a floating media platform for waterfront slum communities, connecting land and water. The design is part of the “African Water Cities” project, which investigates the challenges and opportunities of rapid urbanization and climate change in African coastal cities.

This participatory venture using locally produced materials will be the community’s voice and include recording studios, a computer center, meeting rooms, cinema, and an amphitheatre.
