Description

This session will explore how students at Texas A&M University created next generation health facilities in Kenya with the goal of promoting health and preventing disease. The yearlong effort involved 80 architecture and landscape students and four faculty members, and resulted in design concepts for dozens of primary care centers in Kenya and a biomedical industrial city proposed near the Kenyan capital, Nairobi. The designs considered human health, economic health, animal health, and environmental health.

  • Explain the health problems Kenya experiences
  • Improve communications between the client/owner and the design team
