  1. Hi, Constant.

    I wanted to take the opportunity to express what a big fan of your work I am, which I have been following for a while now mainly through your excellent series of essays regarding urbanism published on The Grid. I’m Nairobi-bred myself, and have a personal and professional interest in precisely the issues you tackle. I’m a trained and practicing architect, having spent my career so far in Germany. I’m reacting to your mission statement, seeing this as an encouragement to get involved in the conversation and development of progressive, public ideas for Nairobi as well as the region at large. Perhaps we can explore and network on some of these. In the meantime please keep doing the important work that you do, and remain assured of my keen attention and support.

    Kind regards, Ngeso Okolo.

    1. Cheers boss. I will get in touch with you via email. Sorry for the late response – in November and December last year the site was down.
