Reaching for Adaptive Urbanism

2015. In J. Holm and M. Kallehauge (eds.), Africa. Architecture. Culture. Identity (Louisiana: Louisiana Museum of Modern Art).

Through a number of projects spread over the African continent the exhibition tells a story of the new architecture of different regions – with its various proposals for accommodating local traditions, strengthen the existing ones and create solutions for the future. The exhibition presents a sensuous architectural scenography and a number of installations, where the form, scale and space of architecture can be perceived on a 1:1 scale. Life around the buildings is also part of the architecture. In the exhibition art, photography, film and other arts create perspective to the architects’ efforts – and helps to refine our image of this part of the world.
