African Design Magazine December 2015 - Page 2

Editor’s view The best of Africa 2015 has been an industrious and pleasurable year for us here at African Design Magazine, showcasing over 120 projects from all four corners of the globe, half of which have been from the African continent. We have pleasure in announcing that in January we will be publishing a special edition; a compendium of Africa’s top 10 architectural projects for 2015. We look forward to revisiting the African projects featured in African Design Magazine in 2015 and selecting the best to showcase and highlight the ingenuity and innovation of the design utilised on our continent. Gregg Cocking Coming back to this issue, our last for 2015, we bring you a bumper selection of new projects, including a BMX track in Canada, a post disaster school in Thailand, a residential block in Iran, offices for a young architectural practice in India, a multi-purpose building at a tennis club in the Netherlands and locally made hospital products in Malawi amongst many other inspiring local and international architectural projects. CREDITS As you may have noticed, African Design Magazine is active across a myriad of social media platforms, namely Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google +, Instagram and YouTube.
