Meet this year's Top40 under 40 Women - Emma Miloyo, President, Architectural Association of Kenya
http://bdafrica.com Emma Miloyo is among the few women set to shape the history of architecture. The 38-year-old wants Kenyan architects to rekindle the love for greenery, by designing buildings around existing trees. This repeat nominee recently became the president of the Architectural Association of Kenya (AAK). She graduated from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology with a first class honors in architecture, in a class that had only three women. She founded a company, DesignSource, with her husband, also an architect that has designed and overseen construction of many buildings in the region. Currently, the mother-of-three is overseeing the construction of a Sh1.2 billion 22-storied building that her company designed. “We need to discard this box-mentality that promotes felling trees to accommodate buildings. If a tree or two exist, we could come up with circular or triangular designs that help preserve such a tree while creating space for gardens, footpaths, and running tracks,” she says. Ms. Miloyo also sits on the board of technology hub Konza Technopolis. She believes construction experts have a solution to low-cost housing in Kenya.
