After a competitive selection process, The Chife Foundation has invited 6 students and recent graduates to join the Anam City research & design team. Kicking off an intensive schematic design phase for the project, the internship will last for 2.5 months and is based in Accra, Ghana. From diverse backgrounds and experiences, the group represents interdisciplinarity at its core.
Engineering interns Jay In (South Korea) and Alex Antobre Seinuah (Ghana) will research infrastructure systems for the city, such as solar energy and biogasification. Keeping in mind the various urban scales, architecture interns Nuzrat Gyamah (Ghana) and Ena Sivcevic (Bosnia) will develop affordable and climate sensitive building typologies for both mixed-use and residential districts in Anam. Urban planning interns Kwame Akoto-Danso (Ghana) and Stacy Passmore (US) will focus on sustainable land use planning as well as socio-economic systems that can inform the operational structures for the future city.
The interns will collaborate with the design team to develop an integrated Master Plan that will ultimately inform the urban design for the new city.
