The Atuabo Akantansi Project

Market Structure
Located near Tarkwa, Ghana, West Africa this market structure is an economic hub of activity for a new community of buildings and people. While working for John vanNostrand and associates (now formed as Architects Alliance in Toronto, John Boone prepared working drawings and physical 3d models to describe a number of housing options and social facilities. The structures themselves are quite simple and focus more on the immediate needs of the new 'settlers'. The cultural and community activities of this and many other small african communities tends to happen in the streets. Open space became an important elemant in the overall plan for this reason alone. The village is now completed and occupied.
