Arc. Edward Ayebeng Botchway is a practicing architect, building and construction consultant, from Ghana. He is a product of one of Ghana’s prestigious universities: Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi, where he obtained degrees in BSC (design), PG dip. (arch), and MSC (construction management). He also holds a PG dip. in project management in information technology from Ghana Telecom University College and Coventry University, UK.
He has been a full member of the Ghana Institute of Architects since 1994, with over twenty years of professional experience in the building and construction industry. As the CEO of the Projekt David Group, he has been involved in the planning, design, monitoring, evaluation, and supervision of a wide range of educational, health, residential, and industrial projects from inception to completion.
He has been a lecturer in the Department of Architecture, KNUST, since 2000 and currently teaches industrial buildings, multi-storey construction, and is a studio master of one of the undergraduate years.
He believes that teaching and practice of architecture must first recognize the existence of form as set out in creation, man’s first built environment. The architect must be aware that any practical solution that provides shelter must not deviate from the conceptual forms that govern nature and should strive to create harmony of function with its origin.
