My architectural focus this year is based around Afrofuturism. A genre that combines Science Fiction, Speculative fiction, historical fiction, Magic realism, Afrocentricity and fantasy with non-western beliefs. This particular design is an experimental design into the world of Afrofuturism. In this piece I am playing with the form of traditional African vernacular huts, re-envisioned with glass and steel. The pattern of the steel structure is informed by traditional African patterns and textures.
