Knowledge Town, Sustainable Place, Ghana
Devereux Architects are working with Kemet University to design a new sustainable community in Ghana.
On a site of over 500 acres (200 hectares) the new sustainable community will have an academic campus as its beating heart. With a supporting civic and social infrastructure the community will have sustainable living as its focus, providing places to live and work in that are integrated with spaces for social recreation and interaction. The buildings and landscape infrastructure will support these sustainable aims creating low energy buildings that reflect the West African vernacular.
