15th October – 28th December
La Triennale di Milano presents “AFRICA Big Change Big Chance”
“AFRICA Big Change Big Chance” is devoted to Africa, a continent in which some of the most interesting phenomena of recent years are taking shape, ranging from great demographic to climate and social changes. International institutions forecast that the urban population will reach 748 million in 2030, surpassing the total figure for Europe, at 685 million.
The exhibition, which is divided into 5 sections, explores and reflects on the urban and architectural transformation and the big changes facing the African continent.
Dealing with Africa from the point of view of architecture means dealing with a place where some of the most interesting complex and even staggering phenomena of recent years are developing. “Change” particularly refers to urban concentration, while “Chance” is personified by the protagonists of African architecture from World War II to tropical modernism, until today; interpreters of an architecture focused on the broader issues of overall urban setting and intervention.
