United World College East Africa

Located at 1,900ft above sea level on the Olchoro Onyore Ridge in Kenya's Rift Valley Region, and 50km south-west of Nairobi, the practice's design for the United World College East Africa draws on local building typologies to create an innovatively arranged campus.  A series of 'fingers' of residential accommodation and teaching units are linked to the student centre and dining hall.  The fingers reach out and across the sloping site, sitting lightly and unobtrusively on this dramatic landscape.  The College, which offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma and Certificates for 200 pre-university students, will be residential for students and staff alike.
