15 February: Kick off lecture on Master studio Bagamoyo @ UHasselt
Since a couple of years, the Ardhi University of Dar es Salaam and the University of Hasselt (B) organise parallel studios in which Tanzanian and Belgium students work on projects in Tanzania with a positive social impact in their environment. This collaboration brings interesting perspectives on the architectural profession on both sides. After a couple of sites in and around Dar es Salaam in the previous years, the studio focusses now on Bagamoyo and the challenge to use its rich history as a basis for future developments.
On Thursday 15 February at 16hrs, the studio will commence with a Kick off lecture by Berend van der Lans, shining a light on issues like the use of public space, heritage based urban regeneration and private sector involvement in heritage management.
