Architecture Otherwhere

03 Aug 2014 - 07 Aug 2014

As the Tokyo Congress came to a close, the world's architects turned their sights toward Durban, South Africa for the next UIA World Congress. Architecture Otherwhere was the theme that defined this forum where all points of view converged, where all voices were heard. Exploring Architecture Otherwhere, other regions, other contexts, other social structures, other practices. Gaining a better understanding of others in order to better understand one's self. In Durban, architects studied the new geography of a world being built, according to other preoccupations, other means of expression, other representation models.
