Nairobi Vision | Henning Larsen
The vision for the Nairobi Greater Metropolitan Region was to strengthen the identity of the Kenyan region thereby creating the basis for growth and development in the area.
This project by Henning Larsen Architects evolves around six key themes: infrastructure, regional planning, architectural and urban planning, landscape planning and governmental steering systems. Using specific strategies within these key areas the ambition has been to unfold a series of untapped holistic and sustainable potentials for the city.
An important criterion has been to find solutions helping the Nairobi region to adapt to global climate change. The competition proposal aims to reorganise the city to make it more sustainable by means of wind, solar and water power. In addition, the project includes a number of suggestions for waste treatment and drainage.
The project was developed in collaboration with the Niras Consultants and local partner ETC.
