Project Summary

Renewal of Kibera Settlement

This project is given merit for its approach to the resettlement of households displaced by a slum settlement upgrade. Notable in this proposal for mixed-use development is the strategy of multilevel walk-ups to encourage density and efficiency, creative land use, the harnessing of renewable energy, as well as the provisions proposed for water conservation.

Of equal merit is the way that external spaces are clustered to increase security and facilitate maintenance.
