MASS.Build Business Development Associate
Kigali, Rwanda

Edmond first joined MASS as an intern in the summer of 2019, working in the business development department where he learned about tracking and sourcing various opportunities, as well as coordinating administrative tasks. He rejoined MASS in 2021, working as the business development lead for MASS Build. Edmond received his Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies from Norwich University, the Military College of Vermont in 2019. He then pursued and attained his Master of Architecture at the same institution in 2020. His thesis was centered on designing a memorial for the 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsis in Rwanda, and it examined how architecture can heal, while embracing memory and creating social, emotional and cultural significance.

Prior to joining MASS, Edmond worked as an Architect at EAACON Ltd, where he supervised projects, and drafted building details. He also interned at GMK Ltd where he learned about project management and project coordination. Edmond is inspired by the socio-economic development of his home country, Rwanda, and believes that he has a major role to play in contributing to its growth.
