STARTUP LIONS CAMPUS

Kéré architecture’s ‘startup lions campus’ is an information and communication technologies (ICT) campus that responds to the pressing challenge of youth unemployment faced in the region. 

It offers high-level training and access to international job opportunities, allowing young entrepreneurs to thrive professionally without having to leave their place of origin.

The project provides 100 new workstations and is the first step in an ambitious vision of spreading ICT networks in remote areas.

Located on the banks of Lake Turkana, Kenya, the ‘startup lions campus’ by kéré architecture takes its cues from the towering mounds built by termite colonies in the region. 

The education building is topped with tall ventilation towers that naturally cool its interiors while creating a landmark in the surroundings.

Set over two levels that follow the site’s natural slope, the campus is built out of locally sourced quarry stone with a plaster finish.
