Dear friends and colleagues,
deeply saddened we have to inform you that Achilles Ahimbisibwe died on February 1st. We lost a dear friend, colleague and fellow of the Transsolar Academy. Many of you who knew him will be heartbroken, as we are.
Achilles was an Fellow of our Transsolar Academy V. His mission was to embrace the opportunities of architecture for improving the reliability of the local electricity distribution, for the better of society in his home country Uganda. After his time in Stuttgart, he quickly became Dean at the Faculty of the Built Environment Uganda Martyrs University. He helped us in our 3 Projects for post occupancy studies of the teacher colleges and kept in touch with us and welcomed visiting students from the ABK Stuttgart in his home country.
We have learned a lot from him and he inspired us culturally and intellectually. While he was one of our “older” fellows, he has still been in his 30ties, way too early to leave this world.
May his soul rest in peace.
