Conversations, from other perspectives

CCA c/o is a series of temporary initiatives that are locally anchored in different cities worldwide, a tool to reveal issues of general relevance that emerge from different contexts than our own, a strategy for defining new thematic explorations and adding new perspectives to ongoing conversations, and an experiment in transforming the CCA itself.

We are interested in different ideas and perspectives emerging from different cultures and places. But we have little interest in the physical infrastructure and subservient relationship of museum franchises or satellites. Today a global institution must be thought of as a network, not a building. Agile and informal, CCA c/o sets down where an interesting architectural discussion is taking place and where a sympathetic partner can offer a unique perspective. They can be independent curators, architects, journalists, photographers, and editors—or other interesting figures we find along the way—but we welcome them as part of the CCA. Sometimes we host them, other times they host us. Each iteration will be different, but here’s what we’ve done so far in Lisbon, Tokyo, Buenos Aires, and Dakar.

CCA c/o Dakar


Beginning 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.

CCA c/o Buenos Aires


In 2020 and 2021 we collaborated with Martin Huberman to produce a series of public programs and research projects in Buenos Aires. Martin Huberman is an architect and curator who combines his experimental design practice Estudio Normal with his work as director of the Galería Monoambiente.

CCA c/o Tokyo

Over the course of 2018 and 2019, we worked with Kayoko Ota, an architectural curator and editor based in Tokyo and commissioner of the Japanese pavilion at the 2014 Venice Biennale, developing research with and facilitating public engagement with our projects in Tokyo.

CCA c/o Lisboa

For our inagural program we partnered with Artéria, an architectural studio led by Ana Jara and Lucinda Correia, to develop a series of public programs in Lisbon that expanded upon on some of our lines of inquiry.
