Obinna Ogunedo

"I pursued a career in architecture because of a very early interest in cities, the material cultures they produced, and the influence of geography on the way they are organized. To me, architecture laid at the intersection of these interests."

Before joining MJMA’s architectural design team in 2016, Obinna obtained first a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from Imo State University in Owerri, Nigeria, and then a Master of Environmental Design from the University of Calgary, Alberta. In the interim, he obtained professional experience as an architectural designer at Lagos-based Anetor + Associates, contributing to housing and institutional projects across Nigeria. Outside office hours, Obinna has volunteered as a participant in the Sukkot Design–Build program, in collaboration with the University of Calgary’s Laboratory for Integrative Design and the Calgary Jewish Community Centre. He is also a co-founder of AdiRè, a cross-disciplinary think tank of designers, economists and urbanists dedicated to investigating and confronting critical issues related to urbanization, cultural preservation, and the development of resilient communities within West Africa.
