Building Africa Exhibition

The Building Africa Exhibition is a collection of stories about buildings and politics in Africa with an overarching narrative about how institutions and identities are described and shaped by architecture. It pulls together research findings from the African State Architecture Project team. The exhibition is curated by Professor Julia Gallagher and Dr Kuukuwa Manful, with coordination by Sunil Pun.

The Building Africa Exhibition itself is designed as a collection of distinct but interconnected exhibitions which will be installed in locations across Africa and in the United Kingdom, including -  Addis Abeba, Johannesburg, Accra, and London.


We have commissioned African architects who have unique research-driven approaches to design these individual exhibitions in Ethiopia (Nahom Teklu Bekele), South Africa (Matri-Archi(tecture): Khensani Jurczok-de Klerk, Aude Tollo, Tshego Mako, and Tapiwa Manase), and Ghana (Augustine Owusu-Ansah and Lois N.K Quartey).
