From contemporary design exhibitions tucked away on gritty, city streets to pop-up fashion showcases in smart art galleries, design has never been as big as it is right now in South Africa.

  • Issa Diabaté on designing the future of urban Africa

    View more inspiring videos like this one at http://www.designindaba.com/video In the Ivory Coast there is one architect for every 130 000 residents. Compare this to the 1:770 in countries like Japan, Italy and Greece, or even the 1: 2000 in countries like France, UK and Australia, and you can imagine that Ivorian architects like Issa Diabaté have a mammoth challenge on their drawing boards, especially given the pressures of rapid urbanisation in the major African cities. In many African countries, although the cultures may be different, it turns out that the urban problems have a similar way of expressing themselves, he says. But is not only the shortage of knowledgeable professionals that poses a challenge according to Diabaté, but also the lack of a vision when it comes to urban pla...

  • Africa Now: Fikirte Addis, designing contemporary Ethiopian garments with a traditional soul

    Fikirte Addis, the founder of Yefikir designs, is drawing on Ethiopia's rich cultural heritage to create modern, everyday clothing. Fikirte Addis is an Ethiopian fashion designer and the founder of Yefiker Design, a label renowned for its use of the most sophisticated Ethiopian traditional fabrics to create contemporary clothing. “Since I began designing there has always been a dilemma about whether to stay modern and follow modern trends or to be cultural and in-touch with your identity,” says Addis. She resolves this dilemma by experimenting with different garments, cuts, beading techniques and beading. “It’s important that [customers] have a touch of culture that still exists in the modern world and it doesn’t have to be too cultural or too modern.”

In many African countries, although the cultures may be different, it turns out that the urban problems have a similar way of expressing themselves, he says. But is not only the shortage of knowledgeable professionals that poses a challenge according to Diabaté, but also the lack of a vision when it comes to urban planning on a political level that leads to an inability to control, monitor and respond in a sustainable way in the urban environment. "It raises questions of the empowering of architecture and how we manage to make the profession sustainable and even more powerful," he explains. Diabaté, in this practice with partner Guillaume Koffi, is employing various strategies to not only to ensure better urban practices but also for a future generation of building designers and city makers. They soon realised that they need to also take on the role of property developers in order to realise the kind of projects that could set an example for others. One of the social perception issues is that high-density living means congestion and that low density development is still preferable. Their Les Résidences Chocolat real estate development fosters a form of emulation not only amongst architects but also the general population. "Because of the configuration of the city and the way we live today, we are trying to promote a different kind of living. we shouldn't shy away from living in apartments and collective environments because if you are a bunch of people together you can do so much more," he says. Diabaté is also involved in starting the first architecture school in the Ivory Coast and developing a curriculum that addresses the specific issues these budding architects would have to face in reality.

Getting off the laptop and engaging with material allows innovations that you only come up with first hand. Known as a chair specialist, Wanga Ngwane'S business also manufactures a range of furniture and accessories. Once again, it’s a vehicle to bring our continent’s own design tradition to the world. If Wanga’s keyhole chair needs neither screws nor glue to remain stable, this design requires so little final assembly, even novices can do it themselves. Stunning to the eye and working organically with other shapes and textures, beneath the skin, Wanga’s pieces also share Candice’s focus on eco-friendly design. In an age of computer assisted design and 3D printing, both of them conceive their own ideas and are entirely hands on in making them too. Taking problems and creating useful, beautiful solutions out of them is the genius of these artists of the everyday. http://www.topbilling.com/

Flooding from monsoon rains lasts from June to September, then the water level drops, and in February, with the arrival of the flood waters from the Niger River, it rises again. Forest rivers and streams of the Nun River basin are home to many species of fish and other aquatic organisms. Although oil production causes serious damage to the local nature, yet in clean rivers significant biodiversity can be found. Mainly semi-aquatic plants grow in places where sun can reach the earth surface enough through the trees.

The population of Abidjan has grown from 1.2 million in 1979 to 6.5 million in 2014. For Diabaté, this stat is problematic as the country still lives on 1970s urban planning, placing pressure on the city and its inhabitants.

Kunlé Adeyemi is a Nigerian architect, urbanist and creative researcher. He is also the founder and principal ofNLÉ, an architecture, design and urbanism practice based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. At the 2013 AZA Architecture Conference, Adeyemi speaks about the African Water Cities Project, Makoko Floating Schooland his view on the future of African-inspired architecture. The African Water Cities project researches the intersection points of issues such as climate change and rapid urbanisation in African cities and communities. For the research project, Adeyemi collected information regarding migration patterns, population growth and areas affected by flooding in order to rank African cities and identify the top 20 potential "water cities" on the continent. The Makoko Floating school is situated in Lagos, Nigeria. The small settlement Makoko can be deemed an aquatic community and has existed for nearly a century. Adeyemi designed a basic structural system using local materials and resources that also shows residents how to improve their own housing structures and the community space as a whole. The Makoko Floating School addresses the issues of urbanisation, climate change, water, waste and policy, says Adeyemi. Made from local materials and build with local resources, the structure provides a space and infrastructure for students to use as a school and community to use as a community centre. The Makoko Floating School draws on sustainable design principles and incorporated environmentally friendly solutions such as natural ventilation, solar panels for energy and waste used as compost for a vegetable garden. Adeyemi believes we are living in interesting times in Africa: "It's a time for opportunities as well as a time to face challenges," he concludes.
