Made in Slums: Mathare / Nairobi

Made in Slums, which accompanies an exhibition of the same name curated by Fulvio Irace, focuses on one of the largest slums in the world. This book is the product of a development cooperation project helmed by NGO Liveinslums to design and construct a school and community agricultural repository in the slum of Mathare in Nairobi. Italian designer Francesco Faccin was commissioned to design both the interior and the exterior of the school, which would need to be constructed using only local materials and manpower.
