Zimbabwean, born in the UK. Graduated Bartlett School of Architecture, London (1973). Worked in London, the Middle East, and Zambia. Settled in Zimbabwe (1980); partner in Adams Jackson Moore. Interested in recording and conservation of historic buildings, writing, architectural education. Founding editor of the magazine, Zimbabwe Environment and Design (ZED). Zimbabwe is infinitely rich in cultural, material and human resources. As a designer I look for new ways of using and expressing this richness, in ways appropriate to
the new social and political contexts of our country. How a building is made is important to what it becomes. Architecture is a series of dialogues - with a client, then with the artisans, labourers and craftsmen who erect it - which together give a building meaning. One then seeks a rapport with those who use it, and with those of whose world it has become part. Architecture should be enjoyable, not merely tolerated. It is not expensive cosmetics applied at the end of a noisy, wet, and dirty process but rather derives from thinking and skill, caring and passion by-all involved from conception to completion. This is recognized by too few private practitioners in this part of the world.
