Ng'ambo Atlas book launch in Zanzibar

Mid-July, on the 13th to be exact, The Ng’ambo Atlas came a full circle and was finally presented to the audience in Zanzibar.

The book presentation took place in the beautiful setting of Kiponda 742 building (Hifadhi Zanzibar’s recent acquisition) and was led by the Director of the Department of Urban and Rural Planning, Dr. Muhammad Juma. The Minister of Information, Tourism and Heritage, the Hon. Mahmoud T. Kombo received the first copy of the atlas and gave a thoughtful, engaging and at times humorous speech on the importance of culture for the future development of Zanzibar.

We are proud to be part of this amazing process and look forward to the new projects ahead of us, some of which - like the presentation at the Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism 2019 - are offshoots of the work we did for the Atlas.

For those who couldn't make it to the event, the Ng'ambo Atlas exhibition will be on display in the Kiponda building until the end of September, you can visit the building throughout the day or have a look at the exhibition while attending one of the events taking place there. Please check Hifadhi Zanzibar's Facebook page for news on events.

Thanks to Rahim Saggaf (black& white), Berend van der Lans and Alexandra Papadaki for the photos, great memories to keep and share with others.
