The Guardian features LTU student work in an article about South African architect Kevin Kimwelle
Kevin Kimwelle is a renowned architect that is most well-known for his buildings completely made from recycled materials, including the Slindokuhle crèche made with 2500 wine bottles. In 2019, faculty, students and alumni from LTU partnered with the International Design Clinic and Kevin Kimwelle to design and construct a community maker space, from salvaged materials. This space will be used for welding, woodwork, recycling, 3D printing and waste bike repairs, and will furnish a base of operations so that LTU teams might work with Mr. Kimwelle in the future to design and construct clinics, schools and other much-needed community projects.
Some of the people involved were Scott Shall, Jason Yeom, Ashraf Hijazi, Ken Humberstone, Nathan Ickes, Stephan Karetnik, Magdalene Kuhns, Bethanie Martin, Emily Reem, Breanna Scranton, and Kayla Thompson.
