Young Architects in Africa
An Architecture Exhibition
Monday, April 20, 2015 - 18:30
Saturday, 9 May 2015
FNCC Gallery

Young Architects in Africa is a travelling showcase of selected projects from the competition of the same name, organized by AS.Architecture-Studio (France) in 2014. With its debut at CA’ASI for the 14th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale (Italy), the exhibition and competition highlighted the plight of young architects as they search for an architectural language that emphasises and encompasses the social, environmental, vernacular and participative nature of the continent.

Amongst the winning projects was the Dordabis Community Spine, a social intervention by young Windhoek-based architects in the village of Dordabis.

Young Architects in Africa est une exposition itinérante qui présente une sélection de projets issus du concours éponyme, organisé par AS.Architecture-Studio (France) en 2014. Présentés pour la première fois à la CA’ASI à l’occasion de la 14e Biennale Internationale d’Architecture de Venise (Italie), l’exposition et le concours ont pour ambition de mettre en valeur l’approche sociale, environnementale et participative des projets architecturaux, exemplaires d’une nouvelle manière de penser la communauté en Afrique.

Parmi ces projets figure la Dordabis Community Spine, une intervention sociale réalisée par une jeune agence d’architecture de Windhoek dans le village de Dordabis.
