Masai Mara Conservation Centre – Design Competition

RIBA Competitions is inviting registered architects to take part in this international open design competition for the design of a new Conservation Centre at the Oloololo Gate, Masai Mara, Kenya.

The competition is open internationally to registered architects. Collaboration is encouraged between individuals and organizations of different size, expertise and experience.

Each shortlisted team will be awarded with £4,000 honoraria to proceed to the second stage of the competition. It is the intention, funding permitting, to commission the author of the winning scheme to develop and implement their winning design.

The Masai Mara Conservation Centre at Oloololo Gate of the Masai Mara National Reserve is envisioned as an innovative and engaging facility that aims to educate, inspire, and create awareness about conservation and the unique ecosystem of the Masai Mara.

This centre will provide visitors with interactive and exciting experiences while promoting sustainable tourism practices. The facility will include parking, essential amenities, an engaging exhibition space, interactive learning zones, a gift shop, and environmentally conscious design features.

The architectural style should blend contemporary design elements with nods to Maasai cultural traditions. Natural materials like wood, stone, and thatch can be integrated into the building’s facade and interior design. Incorporating traditional Maasai paterns, colours, and motifs into the decor can create a sense of place and cultural identity.

The competition is open internationally to registered architects. Architects should be registered with the Architects Registration Board (ARB) in the UK, or an equivalent, recognized overseas regulatory authority.

Please visit the official website for the complete brief.
