Lovely. Seems like KNLS is on a building spree.

Does this mean the old library will be demolished to make way for this one?

Nice one.They should not only demolish,but move away altogether.With the dualing of Ngo'ng rd that place makes a perfect location for an interchange to and from Haile Selassie ave.

yep love the local influences in the building. In general, Nairobi seems to do a good job with this.

IMO, it looks more like the Nelson Awori Centre from the side view. The coke HQ's was designed to look like the C on their logo, and most of that building is below the lawn in front of the curved structure you see in the pic. (The curved structure is just the tip of the iceberg.)
