Australian architect Ross Langdon and his partner Elif Yavuz were eagerly awaiting the birth of their first child when they were both killed in the Westgate Shopping Mall attack in Nairobi in 2013. The tragic news sent shock-waves across the world as family, friends and colleagues learned of their untimely deaths. In just three years Ross had gained a reputation in East Africa for designing beautiful, ecological buildings, using innovative materials. He believed architects should be like chameleons, adapting their ideas to the surrounding landscape and the people and culture who lived in it. He formed close ties with the local communities he worked with and as a result he left behind a legacy as a dedicated architect and a loyal friend to all who were fortunate enough to know him. Elif had been doing research on malaria and working for the Clinton Foundation in Uganda and Tanzania. This documentary was first broadcast on ABC RN Earshot. Producer: Helene Thomas.
