What relevance does socially committed architecture have in Africa and what can the global North learn from the buildings constructed in Sub-Saharan Africa? These and other questions will be discussed in the symposium that will take place at the Ernst von Siemens-Auditorium in the Pinakothek der Moderne. Architects and clients alike will introduce the projects designed and initiated by them and share their long-lasting experiences. The Architekturmuseum der TU München together with the Goethe-Institute Sub-Sahara Africa and the Bavarian Chamber of Architects will hold a three-panel discussion, featuring international guest speakers to address central aspects of the exhibit, such as participation and urbanization.
