|Brook Haileselassie MSc|
Brook Teklehaimanot did his bachelor’s degree in architecture and Urban planning at the Addis Ababa University. He did his postgraduate studies at the ETH, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, doing MAS in Architecture, specializing in Urban Transformations in Developing Territories. His study, situated in the Canton Schwyz of Switzerland and the city of Addis Ababa, was focused on generating urban tools as an outcome of nuanced relationships between urban studies and design strategies. The grasping and reading of the forces of urbanization in developing territories and the subsequent projective intervention, both artistic and architectural, defines the crux of Brooks' work.
He has been teaching and preparing academic materials at the Ethiopian Institute of Architecture, Building Construction, and City Development (EiABC) for the past 15 years. His publication ‘MAKING’ is one of the pioneer trials to start an academic platform for discussing Architectural teaching didactic in the Ethiopian context. He has served as a guest lecturer and researcher at the Tu Delft Global Housing Studio in 2015.
Brook divides his activities between academia and practice. He founded BOTA Architectoch in 2015, an architectural design firm based in Ethiopia. Some of Brook's works have been exhibited at the Tel Aviv Museum of Modern Art entitled; South of the Sahara, Accelerated Urbanism in Africa. Currently, Brook is a delft global fellow and a doctoral candidate at the TU Delft, developing research to understand correlations between spatial practices and housing conditions in Addis Ababa.
