Eastgate Center, Harare (must see)
The Eastgate Centre's design is a deliberate move away from the "big glass block". Mick Pearce took an alternative approach. Because of its altitude, Harare has a temperate climate despite being in the tropics, and the typical daily temperature swing is 10 or 40 °C. This makes a mechanical or passive cooling system a viable alternative to artificial air-conditioning.
