CCA c/o Dakar
The CCA c/o program is moving. Starting in summer 2023 we are collaborating with Nzinga B. Mboup to produce a series of public programs and research projects in Dakar. Nzinga B. Mboup is an architect and curator, co-founder of Worofila, a practice that specialises in bioclimatic architecture and construction using earth and biomaterial sourced locally.
Exploring with Nzinga B. Mboup the current architectural, urban and social context of Dakar, CCA c/o Dakar will expand on the CCA’s investigations into questions related to the African continent and to the environment, including (Centring Africa: Postcolonial Perspectives on Architecture and its forthcoming publication Fugitive Archives: A Sourcebook for Centring Africa in Histories of Architecture).
CCA c/o sets down where an interesting architectural discussion is taking place and where an accomplice can offer a unique perspective to ongoing conversations. CCA c/o Dakar is the fourth iteration of the program, following past programs in Lisbon (2016-2017), Tokyo (2018-2020) and Buenos Aires (2020-2021). The CCA c/o Dakar program will be officially launched in Dakar later in 2023.
