Nairobi is the largest city in East Africa with a population of more than 3 million people. The city faces rapid urbanisation which requires an urgent need for the development of architectural and urban design solutions that seek to inform the planning and architecture of future Nairobi.

Dreams of Nairobi is a themed architectural research and design initiative that culminates in an exhibition of 10 exemplary projects that offer the best responses to the specific urban design issues of Nairobi City. All projects were chosen according to their sensitivity to principles of Green design and sustainability. In addition, all projects offered a direct response to economic needs and aligned themselves with the plans considered by Vision 2030.

The exhibition is organised and curated by African Urban Futures, a think tank based in Nairobi. Its key focus area is based on the research and development of actionable scalable architecture and urban design projects that are informed by the idea of sustainable design and Green architecture.
