Maputopia passado-presente-futuro

‘MAPUTOPIA passado-presente-futuro’ in the Conselho Municipal de Maputo for the 125th anniversary of Maputo.

‘Maputopia’ celebrates Maputo’s wonderful architectural qualities through a mapping exercise of its past, present and its possible future: another 125 years of architectural pride. For the 125th anniversary of Maputo, this exhibition celebrates Maputo’s architecture and, at the same time, brings current challenges to its heritage to the fore.  Academics and artists meet each other and present a penetrating view on the city.

Organised together with the Faculty of Architecture and Physical Planning of the University Eduardo Mondlane of Maputo, the Department of Architecture of the University of Pretoria, the Faculty of Architecture of the Delft University of Technology and the African Architecture Matters Foundation from the Netherlands together with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
