[ebekawopa] : theory of preservation + cultural confluence

ByCarisa Nakano

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Located in the village of Ebekawopa in Ghana, Africa, this international cocoa study center focuses on empowering cocoa farmers through the attainment of knowledge while simultaneously addressing vital contemporary issues of cultural preservation. The goal is that cocoa farmers in developing countries can become an educated part of the value chain by understanding the correlation between cocoa beans and chocolate. Through the use of local materials and labor, the result is a culturally cohesive, ecologically-friendly, and climatologically-sensitive approach to design. This book specifically documents the year-long thesis research of a Cal Poly State University San Luis Obispo architecture student.
