Architect Mariam Kamara speaks to Dezeen in a live Screentime conversation sponsored by Enscape as part of Virtual Design Festival.
Kamara, who is the founder of Naimey-based architecture studio Atelier Masōmī, will discuss her work with Dezeen’s editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs.
The Nigerian architect originally studied computer science at university and worked for several years as a software developer before obtaining her degree in architecture from the University of Washington.
In 2013, Kamara became a founding member of international architecture collective United4Design.
The team, which has projects in the US, Afghanistan and Niger, won an American Institute of Architects Seattle Award for Niamey 2000, a raw-earth housing project located in the capital of Niger.
In 2014, Kamara set up Atelier Masōmī with the aim of creating socially conscious spaces that empower communities.
