From the Architects:

SHop was selected in an international design competition to design the Botswana Innovation Hub, a new building in Gaborone which will provide office and laboratory  space for technology-driven and knowledge-intensive foreign and local businesses as well as research and advanced training institutes. The building will be an iconic symbol of Botswana's support for research and development and the promotion of innovation and entrepreneurship, acting as a nexus for knowledge creation and innovation.
