I went to Nairobi for the first time earlier this year. The first the thing I noticed were the grim outlines of the Marabou Storks. The second thing I noticed were the blue windows.
I don’t know if it’s custom tinted glass or whether the local factory is still working towards transparency. But I haven’t seen windows like these before.
I always like to see iconic styles emerge that aren’t linked to tradition. If it proliferates, I think these windows could become a defining feature of Nairobi.
