À propos

KOUNKUEY DESIGN INITIATIVE (KDI) is an award-winning non-profit design and community development organization that partners with underserved communities in the US, Africa, and Latin America to physically transform communities and in the process, improve environmental, economic, and social quality of life. The architects, urban planners, community organizers, and engineers that make up our team believe participatory design and long-term investment are key to sustainable development. Working collaboratively with communities, we help residents identify priority needs and create and implement design-based solutions that meet those needs.   KDI is headquartered in Los Angeles and has a thriving office in Nairobi, Kenya. For more information about the organization, please visit www.kounkuey.org.

KDI builds Productive Public Spaces, which are:  

1 Formerly unusable and sometimes unsafe areas that become active public spaces such as community meeting areas, vegetable gardens, recreation spaces, and places of micro-enterprise, that are paired with basic infrastructure (e.g. sanitation, bridges, water)

2 Conceived, constructed, and managed by the people who use them, in collaboration with local and international partners

3 Income-generating, socially constructive, and sustainable

4 Projects that would otherwise not be realized through traditional channels

5 Targeted areas that employ strong design concepts to create beautiful spaces

6 Catalysts by which communities improve the social, economic, and environmental lives of their residents
