I really love ruandese projects... There really is a thought process.

Simple but pleasing architecture mixing esthetics with practicality.
Colors that blend well with the environnement.
Affordable architecture.
Integrated plots with mixity.
Usage of different materials.
Environmental qualities, trees preventing from the heat island effects...

Very conscious way of building the city.

A model to follow.

Way better that those uninspired megaprojects badly mimicking American suburbs.

don't know much about that project, but slum dwellers should be moved to Busanza Estate in November-December so I guess construction starts early next year

apparently the roof of the I&M building is for solar panels

The case for green buildings in Rwanda
Quote:
“In using the locally manufactured Ruliba bricks in the design, it reduces the heat generation within the building, as opposed to the normal construction designs in the city that comprise of glass that generates heat, resulting in the need for high use of air conditioning to cool down the premises.”

Furthermore, the window installations on the building are concave, which is said to deflect direct heat from the sun on the building. This way, the brick, and glazing design help to cool down the interior of the building without the need for excessive air conditioning usage.

The roofing design is unique in Kigali, and besides providing an attractive skyline to the city, it also has environmentally-friendly features. The central portion of the roofing is fairly transparent, allowing for natural light to pass into the central portion of the two tower blocks of the building design. The roofing is also being overlaid with solar paneling. This will allow the bank to use solar energy resources.

The drainage has been designed in such a way that the use of a Siphon drainage system will allow rainwater to be drained from the building into a holding tank that will have a treatment plant – allowing the rainwater capture to be converted to full potable water (including drinking water) for use within the building.

Oh sh*t, it's worse
