List of Nairobi Buildings that were built by Freemasons

Here is a list of Nairobi buildings that were built by Freemasons. Nairobi is the country’s largest city, and the tall structures that have recently been built in the capital are the talk of the town.

A tour of the city’s tall buildings may hurt your neck, but a few of them will stay with you because of the incredible architectural designs that went into their construction.

While the majority of the buildings currently under construction use European-inspired aluminum cladding and glazing, the beauty and originality of some of the structures in and around Nairobi’s Central Business District cannot be overlooked.

These structures were built by Freemasons many years ago and have since become well-known city landmarks. The Freemasons built religious and colonial organizations by incorporating their signs and symbols into their work.

J.A. Hoogterp, a government architect, began planning Nairobi in the 1920s. Sir Herbert Baker, a freemason, succeeded him after he relocated to Johannesburg, South Africa.

Nairobi has taken design cues from cities such as Washington DC, Paris, Cape Town, Pretoria, Canberra, New Delhi, and La Plata, Argentina. The architectural layouts of these cities were thought to be masonic, complete with signs and symbols.

The Freemasons were allowed and free to work wherever they pleased. They were famous for their exquisite stone carving, bricklaying, and precise construction, which have all stood the test of time.

Many buildings in Nairobi were built by Freemasons, including institutions for politics, business, education, and religion.
