Ishmael Mosinyi is dedicated to the growth of architecture practice in Botswana, he proclaimed. The experienced architect says he has, and still is dedicating most of his time helping others, especially the youth make it into the profession.
“I have dedicated a significant part of my professional life to the betterment of the professional landscape for those ‘following in my footsteps’. I have mentored and worked tirelessly to empower young aspiring architects and assisted many in getting into competent schools of architecture abroad. This was followed by part time ‘teaching’ of Design Studio at the University of Botswana right at the inception of our first local School of Architecture. I continue to dedicate some of my personal time to mentoring and giving guidance to aspiring architectural professionals. One of my key goals is to see equitable representation of all registration categories and the ‘growth’ of especially citizen owned professional firms.” vowed Mosinyi.
