• Joe Osae Addo on the Connecting Tissues of Resilience

Joe Osae Addo, a societal extrovert,  is a Ghanaian architect that reinterprets and engages his design  senses in a pseudo modern yet traditional palette. He tries to see Africa beyond its problems and tries to look at the architecture based on African architecture that has come to be defined from great pedigree and resilience rather than the problems facing it.
