Alongside Africa is partnering with the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia to design and build the Amasiko Halfway House under the direction of Professor Anja Planiscek
The Faculty of Architecture of the University of Ljubljana is considered one of the best Central European architectural schools. Its level of quality is evidenced by numerous successful students and graduates who are achieving enviable results in Slovenia and abroad, and also by the quality teaching staff who effectively cover the majority of the modern aspects of architectural creation.
The Amasiko Halfway House project will form an integral part of the architectural course with students involved in the design and building of the structure.
Recently representatives from the university, including Professor Anja Planiscek, met with the Alongside Africa team in Kabale to survey and assess the land, learn local building techniques and investigate the availbility and quality of local building materials.
Building of the Amasiko Halfway House, using local builders and materials, is scheduled to start in July 2017.
