Spatial Strategies For Manyatta
After three years working together to assist Ghana’s two largest cities, Accra and Kumasi, in reimagining and reinventing more fully integrated and functional downtown neighborhoods there, in this fourth year of MCI’s and UDL’s collaboration we have moved eastward to Kisumu, Kenya’s third largest city and a Millennium City since 2006, which hugs the northeastern corner of Lake Victoria, Africa’s largest lake. As in Accra and Kumasi, UDL’s brilliant faculty and young professional graduate students, hailing from all over the world, were invited to apply their collective knowledge, skills, and experience in the city’s most impoverished, least connected areas, in this case, the informal settlements comprising Manyatta A and B, where MCI has long been working in association with multiple local and international partners.
