First Architecture School in Sierra Leone

On the 24th of April 2014 we signed an agreement with the University of Sierra Leone and the Sierra Leone Institute of Architects to help found Sierra Leone’s first School of Architecture.
The new School grows out of our involvement with live projects and research in Freetown since 2008. In 2011 Cass researchers and students helped build the Ivor Leigh Memorial primary school in Kaningo. Since then they have surveyed three historic Freetown neighbourhoods and documented these in an exhibition at the British Council and a publication - The Architecture of Three Freetown Neighbourhoods: Documenting changing city topographies 2008-2013. This book aims to raise awareness of the architectural history, culture, topography and future potential of Freetown.
