Sename Koffi Agbodjinou

Woelab
Searcher/Anthropologist
Born in 1980 in Togo, Sename is architect, researcher in anthropology, ICT social entrepreneur and poet. After a long experience in humanitarian construction, he created the platform 'L’Africaine d’architecture' which aims to explore the possibilities of an alternative architecture based on the line "modernity rooted" enhancing vernacular aesthetics and resources. In 2012 he identified a correspondence between the hacker ethic and values ​​of traditional African societies and developing the concept LowHighTech to mark this proximity and make possible an original approach of technology that would make it accessible to the lowest strata. The smart city project "Hubcité Africfaine"; WoeLab (first African Space of Technology Democracy) and W.Afate (first “Made In Africa & with e-waste” 3D printer) are today the best ambassadors of this vision of society.
