Building materials were severely limited and ripple effects from the 1994 genocide were still strong, leaving Rwandan society displaced and disproportionately female. After the genocide, the Rwandan government enacted the controversial "imidugudu" development strategy; a "villagization" program that tried to gather rural homesteads together in villages, to make it easier to deliver resources. Even more Rwandans were displaced as a result, and often did not receive the promised resources.*</p> <p> Sho's work with the GAC is to aid reconstruction without further disrupting Rwandans' lives. They partnered with Dushyigikirane, a women's organization in the northern Rwandan town of Masoro, to help the community build their own housing so they wouldn't be forcibly relocated. GAC would help Dushyigikirane in designing the new village of 50 houses, using the ac...</p> Get Lectured: Syracuse University Fall '13 Justine Testado 2013-09-23T14:47:00-04:00 >2013-09-23T15:29:35-04:00 <img src="" width="514" height="759" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Archinect's Architecture School Lecture Guide for Fall 2013</strong></a><br><br> Here on Archinect we recently launched "Get Lectured", where we'll feature a school's lecture series--along with their snazzy posters--for the current season.

Russell, writer of the soon-to-be-released book <em>The Agile City</em>, on a tour of the facility highlighting many of the technologies used in the building. From radient panels, automated blinds-between-panes and a fresh-and-filtered air system design to handle the next-door highway pollution, the green-roofed facility aims to demonstrate and test many of the technologies needed in the coming century. These practices, in turn, reduce the buildings energy use leading to smaller boilers and other infrastructural demands.</p> <p> To learn more, visit <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">"Syracuse Builds $41 Million Green Incubator: James S.
