FOLIO: Journal of Contemporary African Architecture
3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Online - Zoom meeting
Please join editor-in-chief Prof. Lesley Lokko, dean of The Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture at The City College of New York, and guest editor Dr Caroline Wanjiku Kihato, to celebrate the launch of FOLIO: Journal of Contemporary African Architecture Volume Two: Noir Radical. With 34 submissions from architects, educators, activists, students, recent graduates, and artists, contributors have explored the idea of "radical" across the African continent and the African diaspora through the lens of three areas: discourse, discipline, and development. Together with guest editors Prof. Mark Olweny, Prof. Emeritus Iain Low, and Dr. Caroline Wanjiku Kihato, the collection builds on the collection of voices in Volume One: Pupae, and will continue to be an important home for African built-environment discourse. Contributors Senzo Mamba, Iain Low, DK Osseo-Asare, and Mandy Shindler will each speak about FOLIO’s importance on the continent and in the African diaspora. Owing to the pandemic, Volume Two: Noir Radical is published digitally, but print copies will be available in Spring 2021 on our website.

Registration is required and space is limited to 300 participants. #folio
