dc.description.abstractThe thesis evaluates the location and design of a proposed satellite market in Akyem Oda, a midsize town in the rain forest region of Ghana. Visits made during the summers 2006 and 2007 were part of the ongoing yearly Ghana Summer Service-Learning Studio. In 2006, the District Chief Executive of Birim South presented a document authored by an architectural planning firm that outlined recommendations and presented a design for a new marketplace in the Nkwantanum neighborhood. A separate plan by the local district planning department was presented in 2007. A review of the previous proposals, along with an alternate design solution is the focus of this thesis. It takes into consideration the following: the future economic development of Akyem Oda, the quality of the traditional open air market experience, unique West African city cultural patterns, and the preservation of sensitive wetlands. Finally, the professional’s role in international development is evaluated.
