Symposium Metropolis Nonformal
Landscape, Infrastructure and Urbanism in the Global South
Arthur Adeya, a landscape architect from Nairobi presented the Kounkuey Design Initiative. His focus was not to invest on single sector improvements like infrastructure but to focus on the interconnectedness of the challenges and attempts to deal with the problems in single integrated projects. These are projects which start with physical design but in progress include economy, environmental and social components. Adeya illustrated this with so called productive public space projects in Kibera, one of the major slums in Nairobi, and income generating activities in Kibera’s village Soweto East.
