The Kalisher Multi-Purpose Center in Rwanda was completed through a non-profit organization, Journeyman International. Dan and Frances Klinck created a vision for a master plan in the Sunzu Yacu Village in Rwanda and teamed up with Journeyman International to accomplish it. The Kalisher Multi-Purpose Center is the next step in completing their master plan. This center will serve as a place of gathering and community for the locals. It will house various events including, but not limited to: community meetings, private ceremonies, performances, church gatherings, learning opportunities and a space for growth. This project was interdisciplinary and combined efforts from students in the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and members of the Journeyman International team. The project team designed the structure, ensured its structural stability, and created construction documents. This paper outlines the main construction elements of the project.
