Informal Addis

We feel that the informal sector of Addis Ababa can teach us a great deal about the use of architecture and its social role. Due to the different redevelopment strategies /interventions/, most of these parts of the city will change within the next years. Thus, it is the right time to document a century old way of living in Addis. The goal of this movie is an educational documentary on how space is used in the informal parts of Ethiopia’s capital. Looking at one traditional Kebele House for the duration of 24 hours, one can notice how a single room can carry out the functions needed in life by for example a simple shift in furniture. Interviews with the owners, the users and experts will give further insight into the topic.

Handicap National 

Multi purpose complex (G+8) for handicap national with specific details and standards to meet the requirements. The design is underway and attempts to achieve spatial qualities of both internal as well as external spaces by taking the program as a generating concept in developing the project.  The project also proposes domestic minimum standards of circulation, ramps and access to disabled people. By doing so, it promotes a safe, comfortable and accessible building standard to the city.

X-Streaming inner city Streams
