In the twi parlance, there is a saying that “adepa na 3t)n ne ho” which translates to mean “good things sell themselves”. In recent times, many architecture students and professionals have showcased some of their designs which many cannot believe are made by Ghanaians.
In this article, YEN.com.gh highlights some of them below.

Philip Aboah, Eileen Asare & Francis Aggor Design Students’ Hostel
There are very few times that authorities listen and act on initiatives by students. This is one of those times. Three former students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) collaborated and designed a students’ hostel during a design competition.
They won the competition and their project has been built on the school’s campus. This is a testament to the fact that hard work indeed pays off.
Many took to Twitter to congratulate the young students on the good work done.
Boakyewaa said on Twitter that:
I like that it has been built
Kass_Yahaya added that:
Chale this is massive. If only most of our indigenous brains were utilised this way, this country would have gone far.
On my next visit to kumasi I will go and see this building

He was honoured by the British government for his good works and was awarded the Royal Gold Medal. David Adjaye became the first black architect in the award’s 173-year history to receive the award.
