Architects Share Success Stories on Glo-Sponsored CNN African Voices



African Voices Playmakers, the 30-minute magazine programme sponsored by Globacom on CNN International, will this weekend feature two high profile architects who have successfully created more inclusive places for people to live, work, and play.

The guests who will be on the programme include Nigeria-born Tosin Oshinowo and  Luyanda Mphalwa, from South Africa.

Oshinowo is a Lagos-based  architect and designer, creative entrepreneur, public speaker and author. She is renowned for her expansive residential and commercial spaces and insights into socially-responsive approaches to urbanism.

A graduate of Architecture from Kingston College, London, she holds a Master’s degree in Urban designs from Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London.

As a result of her successful practice at Oshinowo Studio, an architectural, urban and interior design practice based in Lagos, she has won numerous awards including the 3rd City People Real Estate Awards for Architect of the Year 2017 and the Lord’s Achievers Awards for Creativity, in celebration of World Achievers Day 2019.

Mpahlwa, on the other hand, is one of the first set of black South Africans to study architecture. He holds Masters in Architecture from the Technical University of Berlin and is the Director of DesignSpaceAfrica, a Cape Town-based architecture and design practice he established in 2009.
