THE POWER OF ARCHITECTURE: A CENTER FOR COOPERATIVE AGRICULTURE EXCHANGE THESIS . KIGALI, RWANDA
RECOGNIZING THAT WHILE RWANDA IS A COUNTRY ON THE RISE, ITS’ GROWTH IS DIRECTLY LINKED TO FINDING AN ALTERNATE EXPORT TO AGRICULTURE. AS THE COUNTRY SHIFTS TOWARDS COMMUNICATION INFRASTRUCTURE, IT IS EQUALLY VITAL THAT RWANDA STABILIZES ITS AGRICULTURE INDUSTRY. THE COOPERATIVELY RUN AGRICULTURE EXCHANGE EXISTS FOR THIS REASON. SUSTAINING UNDER ONE PRIMARY PRINCIPLE, THAT THE AGRICULTURE EXCHANGE IS HOLISTICALLY RUN TO ORGANICALLY GROW AND PROVIDE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BETTER THE PEOPLE OF RWANDA.
WINTER 2011 - SPRING 2011
FOUR SECTORS TO A HOLISTIC COMMUNITY
COMMUNITY THE COOPERATIVE’S FOCUS IS BASED IN AGRICULTURE, A MUCH NEEDED AREA OF REFORM IN RWANDA
90% of Rwandans rely on agriculture for a primary source of income yet only 35% of Rwanda’s GDP comes from it. The opportunity that the architecture provides is only feasible if locals invest in the center. Providing engaging exterior nodes users are encouraged to interact with the center.
INDIVIDUAL THE EXCHANGE CENTER, EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES AND RESEARCH LABORATORIES ALL PROVIDE THE OPPORTUNITY FOR INDIVIDUAL GROWTH Future development will focus in regional trade and infrastructure systems. As for right now the education the cooperative center offers will begin to reshape Rwanda’s agriculture export. Labor techniques and agricultural skills will be more accessible and therefore more beneficial to the individual.
RECOGNIZING THE IMPORTANCE OF REGIONAL CONNECTIONS BY PROVIDING SERVICES TO EXPAND AGRICULTURE ON A LARGER SCALE Rainwater harvesting is one of many ways the agriculture exchange can organically grow. Collecting rainwater and recycling it on site is critical to the success of the building. It can also provide the knowledge for users to develop their own system.
EDUCATION EMPLOYING LOCAL STAFF ALLOWS THE AGRICULTURE EXCHANGE TO BE COOPERATIVELY RUN BY AND FOR THE COMMUNITY OF RWANDA Through this and the use of the exchange market as well as provided education nodes (i.e. on site farm and classrooms), Rwandans can seek new sources of education. Developing a deeper knowledge base for the direct community in agriculture.
REGIONAL CONNECTIONS THROUGH AGRICULTURE The cooperative exchange not only employs and educates local community members, it encourages extensions into surrounding regions. Phase 2 focuses on classrooms that will be led by locals with farming seminars and technology training.
COMMUNITY MEMBERS WILL DEVELOP THE EXCHANGE MARKET INTO A VIBRANT PLACE FOR TRADE Since it will be the place most frequently visited, the exchange market has separate entrances from the rest of the complex. Users are encouraged to come to the site to market and trade their goods and explore at their leisure.
