April here, writing from Nairobi. I’ve been in Kenya for about two weeks working to implement the Unslumming Kibera vision as presented at AECOM’s UrbanSOS competition. As the winners of that competition, the Unslumming Kibera team won $25,000 to bring the project to life.
Key to implementation is our partnership with Kounkuey Design Initiative (KDI). KDI has been working in Kibera since 2006 implementing productive public spaces. Our $25,000 contribution to KDI will help build a playground at Kibera Public Space Project (KPSP) 04 and support design and development of KPSP05. For this first post, I wanted to take you on a tour of public spaces 01 – 05. just follow the link below.http://unslummingkibera.wordpress.com/
