The agora was the main centre* of activity in ancient Greek cities. It was a place of confluence, where life was shared. Simply put, the agora was a place of dialogue.
This blog serves as an outlet for my opinions on architecture and urbanism in Kenya and the rest of Africa; my hope is that it will become a platform for the exchange of exciting and innovative ideas that will make for better places and spaces.
The writer of the blog:
Thanks for stopping by!
I am a Kenyan Christian who is currently trying to find a happy medium between the idealism of my student days and the pragmatism of life outside the bubble that college can sometimes be. I started this blog as a WordPress page in August 2011; see HERE.
I love edifying conversation and the occasional cup of Kenyan AA, and entertain the dream of owning my very own Black Mamba (or roadster, whichever you prefer) one day.
