Résumé
This thesis examines the underlying causes of the overcrowding of Old Naledi in Gaborone, Botswana, as well as architectural responses that can bring about a livelihoods approach to empowerment of the populace, to facilitate decongestion in a humane manner as well as alleviate future unnatural population growth. Skills development, education on hygiene, resources management, dissemination of information, and availing of opportunities brings people together to build community. Through the design of a complementary set of new public institutions on five sites, the residents of Old Naledi are brought into more contact with the larger city of Gaborone in an exchange of ideas, exhibition of products, exchange of culture and the arts, to not only expand the community beyond the physical confines of the Old Naledi boundaries, but as well to expand opportunities and sell the good elements of Old Naledi to the larger city. This thesis thus explores social integration of Old Naledi community into the day to day life of the city of Gaborone.
