"I was born and raised in Kampala, Uganda. I developed a love for art while growing up: my family is large and we come from a farming village, my parents are from the same tribe but different clans. I have come to appreciate our local traditions & culture. Today however, societies are losing their customs. I am interested in architecture that explores and expresses our cultures and lifestyles while finding a bridge between the modern and old. Ever since I began my secondary education, I have always been curious about new trends, approaches and solutions. Can urban spaces be tailored to suit our lifestyles, values; to convey meaning? I am also inspired by the tropical nature around, and the role it plays in the quest for shelter. Others interests are sustainable housing and green architecture. I am currently completing my 4th year at the Architecture school, Makerere University, in Kampala."
