African Design Philosophy: Community Engagement & Development Practices with Nmadili Okwumabua from CPDI Africa!
Nmadili Okwumabua is the Executive Director and founder of CPDI Africa, “a culture-inspired research-based and design-build movement that aims to develop new architectural design languages for Africa and the Diaspora that are culturally and environmentally sustainable.” The organization “believes in promoting creativity and dialogue for collective community development embedded in African traditions.”

The session will focus on how every culture has a place in architecture and teachings to share, specifically identifying ways one can adopt the African community development philosophy and utilize sweat equity in their locality.

Additionally, we ask you to watch these videos prior to the workshop.
