Housing and Home Design in Kigali
I worked at MASS Design Group in Kigali, Rwanda. I worked on multiple projects in a collaborative setting. My main project comprised of designing the rural house of the future, for which I studied rural home-construction practices in Rwanda and provided construction drawings and renderings for our client. I also performed research on the efficacy of implementing cooperative housing projects within the city of Kigali in order to mitigate the urban sprawl the city currently experiences.
