Reimagining Future African Cities at the Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam

On the 14th of October AAMatters will participate in an afternoon dedicated to critical exploration and (re)imagining the future of African cities. The event kicks-off with panel discussions featuring mentors and practitioners from the Building Beyond Programme, followed by an hour long presentation by AAMatters in which we will explore the practicalities and challenges of mapping as a tool of integrated urban development together with Ali Khamis from the planning department in Zanzibar and concludes with a talk by Rem Koolhas revisiting his numerous encounters with the city of Lagos. The programme accompanies the exhibition Water Cities Rotterdam by Kunle Adeyemi and there will be opportunities to view the exhibition between the talks and presentations.
