The exhibition will feature work from photographer David Southwood and architect Anne Feenstra. If you’re in Kigali, come visit!
‘The Good Cause’ shows the thin line between architecture of war and architecture of peace. It shows the complexities of a post-conflict resolution but also gives clues how architecture can contribute to a sustainable peace. The exhibition can be seen as an
instalment in a long-term project with the aim to better the way the world deals with international peace keeping and reconstruction.
‘The Good Cause’ is the second exhibition made as part of the Architecture of Peace project. The first exhibition took place in September 2011 at the Canadian Centre of Architecture (CCA), Montreal. This exhibition is conceived by Archis, Amsterdam. and organized by the Netherlands Architecture Institute (Nai), Rotterdam, in collaboration with the Canadian Centre for Architecture.
Opening Night: 24th of November at 6.30 pm
