Lubuto in Africa

Eleni Coromvli

Eleni Coromvli, Regional Program Director, a practicing architect in Zambia, is a Greek national who has made her home and family in Zambia. Her doctoral and masters' studies at the University of California at Berkeley emphasized the 'building process,' an integrated process of building comprising design, construction and user's participation, and urban design. Eleni has extensive experience in architecture/urban design and construction management, gained through participation in numerous and diverse architectural projects in three continents (Europe, North America and Africa).

Eleni's interest in applying her architectural knowledge and talents to Zambia has given her an understanding that is particularly suited to the needs of the Lubuto Library Project. She acquired valuable knowledge of Zambian community life patterns and problems through extensive social research into various communities in several parts of the country. She has an in-depth understanding of vernacular Zambian architecture and significant experience in incorporating indigenous spatial patterns and building techniques into modern building. Eleni also is very familiar with the lives and needs of street children as a result of her work with the Fountain of Hope in Lusaka.
