Christian Benimana : African Architect and Design built by Africans


Architecture that brings communities together

Christian Benimana wants to build a network of architects who can help Africa's booming cities flourish in sustainable, equitable ways -- balancing growth with values that are uniquely African. From Nigeria to Burkina Faso and beyond, he shares examples of architecture bringing communities together. A pan-African movement of architects, designers and engineers on the continent and in diaspora are learning from and inspiring each other, and Christian Benimana invites us to imagine future African cities as the most resilient, socially inclusive places on earth.
