Campus Startup Lions in Turkana County

Kéré Architecture 

On the shores of one of the African Great Lakes, a center devoted to new technologies offers training and job opportunities, endeavoring to put a halt to the exodus of young entrepreneurs.

Finding inspiration in the region’s abundance of mounds built by termites, the terraced building features wind towers that mitigate the high temperatures and prevent dust from accumulating inside.

Constructed with plastered local stone, the five buildings filled with classrooms and workshops adapt to the site’s irregularities, scattering in levels around a courtyard that terraces open out to.
