Discover MASS Design Group's approach to innovative architectural and engineering design in the context of Rwanda and East Africa.

The speakers demonstrate how they are trying to develop a higher quality built environment in resource-limited settings through collaborating with government agencies, suppliers, clients, contractors and designers.

The lecture also examines local material research such as earth construction, burnt brick alternatives, and sustainable timber construction.
