this just makes me ask: why did you stop?

look at most buildings built over the past 200 years or so. most of them do not look like these and if they do then they have been hidden away in some secret corner somewhere.
in ancient and medieval Ethiopia you have a unique African architecture that was on par aesthetically and structurally with much of the rest of the world and then it seems that instead of progressing, things seem to have stopped and now most modern buildings look like most of the rest of the continent - like crap.
^^Agree 100%, although I'd say 20 years rather than 200.
Ethiopian Architect Board?


Is there something like Ethiopian Architects Board and does it have a website?

any lead is appreciated!

Odaku, there is the Association of Ethiopian Architects (AEA), which is a solely professional organization, and does not provide any type of professional certification. Here's its website:
Architect licensure is handled by the Ethiopian Ministry of Works and Urban Development. Hope this answered your question.
