Nii Ala Russell Adjei
Nii Ala Russell Adjei is an architect from Accra, Ghana whose work can already be seen on 3 continents. He is currently continuing his architecture studies in the highly competitive Tsinghua University program which is currently globally ranked among the top 10 best architecture schools in the world.
When he is not designing, in his free time he likes to write about the challenges facing his people. While some may consider him a Pan-Africanist, he considers himself to be more of a Nkrumaist. He believes that today’s generation needs to educate themselves more about the precolonial history of Africa so that they may become not only stronger and more confident, but also independent and completely free from imperialism.
