"Mouthful of Meetings" Seminar at Venice Biennale & Exhibition at Helsinki Design Week
"Mouthful of Meetings" Seminar at Venice Biennale & Exhibition at Helsinki Design Week

What are the challenges in Africa's current rapid socio-economic development that architects have the capacity to address? Can foreign architects play any role on the African continent today and during the coming decades? If so, how?

”Mouthful of meetings” is a moderated conversation focusing on socioeconomic sustainability in current and future development collaboration. It brings together contemporary Nordic and African architecture practices and institutions with focus on socially committed architecture. The event adds a contemporary layer to the Nordic Pavillion exhibition 2014, ”Forms of Feedom. African Independence and Nordic Models”.

Along with the seminar, the South of North Travelling Exhibition will visit the Helsinki Design Week 2014. The exhibition presents the work of 12 young Nordic architecture offices, who all have realized projects in developing environments. The exhibition presents a Nordic perspective to a globally growing phenomenon: emerging architectural practices committing to global issues related to ecological and social sustainability.
