Summer 2014-15 Design-Build Workshops in Ghana: Building With Local Earth
Nka Foundation, Now accepting applications for 2014 through 2015 design-build workshops for learning-by-doing on sustainable architecture at Abetenim in Ghana.

Contact: or for application form.
Our program promises high-impact learning practice, ideal for motivated college students and recent graduates seeking real-world learning opportunities to explore and generate design solutions in a location outside of Western culture.

It provides you with an opportunity to immerse in the local Ashanti culture and collaborate in a design-build process that involves fieldtrip to local sites, discussions, and learning-by-doing on a building project.

You will work side-by-side with local artisans and creative colleagues to generate an alternative using sustainable natural materials while furthering your knowledge of the intersections between architecture and rural development.

Experience how a design problem, budget and site-specific dynamics such as materials, indigenous technologies and community can provoke resourceful thinking and hybridization.

In the process, the student will learn to design what is buildable to make a well rounded graduate. Our design-build workshops runs for about 8 weeks, you can join any time and participate for a minimum of 2 weeks.
Dates: We run Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring Workshops.

Who can participate: Everybody is welcome: students and recent graduates of architecture, design and volunteers from around the world. Students can use the opportunity for internship/stage or thesis.

Project site: Abetenim Arts Village, which is an mud architecture demonstration site and arts training center, located 40 km Southeast of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.

Accommodation: Guest houses at our arts village, or homestay with a local family for cultural immersion.
