Our Director/Founder, Baba Oladeji was invited by faculty and students in the SMArchS program at MIT to speak at the symposium titled ‘Engineering Independence: Concrete Architecture in the Global South'

Engineering Independence: Concrete Architecture in the Global South explores the global dynamics and local factors that shape the work of structural designers in the Global South, highlighting significant contributions largely omitted from conventional western scholarship. The symposium is organized and developed by students and faculty in the 4.s48 Collaborations in Concrete seminar, led this spring by Caitlin Mueller and Mohamed Ismail.

Baba joined the Moroccan architect, Aziza Chaouni on the ‘Current & Future Work’ panel moderated by John Ochsendorf, the Class of 1942 Professor of Architecture and Engineering at MIT.
