Winner Jason Ngibuini

Jason Ngibuini received a R10 000 award for first place.

Ngibuini’s thesis is entitled ‘Sherehe ya chai’: Transmutation of Kikuyu vernacular as an ‘immersive tea tasting retreat’ and details the construction of an immersive tea tasting room to promote and educate on tea drinking in his mother’s native Kenya.

‘With discussions around post-colonial architecture in Kenya, a focus is put on the transmutation of Kikuyu vernacular architecture to ensure the cultural continuity of skills and expertise that are bound within traditional knowledge,’ the thesis explains.
