We look forward to welcoming you to the exhibition Informal Horizons at the KADK’s library on Wednesday, 4 September. The exhibition showcases some of the issues associated with the ongoing extensive urbanization processes on the African continent.
Africa is the world’s least urbanized continent. Yet, the continent is characterized by rapid urban growth, with a large influx from the rural to urban areas in search of a better life. Nearly 70% of the urban population lives in areas defined by the UN as slums. These are areas characterized by poor housing, overpopulation, uncertain ownership and tenancy conditions, and a lack of clean drinking water and sewerage. Thus, the exhibition focuses on informal settlements and land rights in East Africa and shows Architects Without Borders’ projects in the region.
The exhibition is made by Architects Without Borders and the Department of Architecture, Urbanism & Landscape, KADK.
