INTBAU Ethiopia has launched a five-month long online talk series. The programme includes talks from academics, researchers, and practitioners from Ethiopia and abroad, who are to present on a variety of topics, focusing on Ethiopia’s built heritage and the traditional building practices within the country. The series seeks to inspire, engage, and educate participants about local methods of designing for a better built future. The sessions will be held on the last week of every month from February until June and are free to attend for all interested.
