AAmatters forms part of the project team of the Uganda Museum ‘Keeping It Modern’ project aiming at developing a conservation management plan for the building. Uganda Museum, designed by the German architect Ernst May and built in 1954, is one of the first purpose-built museums in Africa and one of the first modernist buildings in Kampala. The museum is a popular landmark for local residents and international tourists, but its prime location, coupled with real estate development pressures in Kampala and lack of heritage protection laws puts the building under threat. Over time the condition of the building has also suffered from lack of adequate maintenance leading to its gradual deterioration. The project will result in a document that will assist the team at the Uganda Museum in future management and maintenance of the building and minor structural repairs.
