  • Kericho cathedral was delivered by the Kenyan Architects team at Triad Architects Nairobi (Amyas Connell’s RIBA Gold medal winning practice) comprising two RIBA Chartered Architects among them. Most of the detailing was done by them, realising and resolving JMP’s design intent drawings. The immensely complex trapezoidally extruded stereometry was modelled in Vectorworks by Vectorproject Kenya (Zana Akili Kubuni), and Tekla by Steel Structures Ltd. in Kenya. Some credit due surely, or aren’t the African locals worth a mention?

  • Jon - the design architect (a Bartlett alumni who shall remain nameless except suffice to say no longer works for JMP) wouldn't spend more than 24 hours in Kenya for a site visit because he had tickets for Glastonbury. Let me not tell you how that went down.
