Dr. Aloy and Gesare Chife Foundation, Anam City, Nigeria, Project Architect

Part of a small management team on a new city development, I was responsible for the design, construction drawings, budgeting and scheduling of several prototype single and multi-family houses, a passive agriculture storage facility, multiple temporary bamboo workshops, and a 40-bed health center. I simultaneously coordinated construction of several buildings, organizing materials and labor, and overseeing quality control. The project's guiding principle was to hybridize local materials and knowledge with global sustainable technologies in targeted architectural solutions to housing, agro-industry, and health care.
