In connection with the UIA congress and Copenhagen’s role as the 2023 World Capital of Architecture, the architects’ association has invited architectural firms and other stakeholders to build a series of pavilions along the waterfront, offering their “wildest visions for the sustainable architecture of the future”. In our pavilion, which will be built in front of BLOX overlooking the harbour, we will focus on the unimaginably poor sanitary conditions in the urban slums of sub-Saharan Africa, and on a concrete solution in the form of a biocentre that we are currently building in a slum in Kampala, Uganda. Read more about the biocentre here.
The pavilion will be an abstraction of the biocentre and will illustrate the main functions of the building in translated form, namely the toilet, the meeting place, the architecture and urban farming. The pavilion will stand in front of BLOX from May – September 2023.
