Daniels – Architecture Rooted in Place
Join architect Nzinga Biegueng Mboup, principal of the Dakar-based practice WOROFILA, for a lecture on designing and building in the Senegalese context, with references to its climate, culture, traditions and unique “concrete modernity.” Mboup will address working with biomaterials, passive design strategies, her various cultural projects, and her research and collaborations. A Q&A session will follow.
Nzinga Biegueng Mboup is a Senegalese architect and principal of Dakar-based WOROFILA, a practice that specializes in bioclimatic architecture and construction using locally sourced earth and biomaterials. In addition to co-running WOROFILA, Mboup has piloted research projects and is a participant in the 2023 Venice Biennale of Architecture. She was recently appointed curator of the Canadian Centre for Architecture program CCA c/o Dakar, a series of public programs and research projects in the Senegalese capital.
This event is part of the Daniels Faculty’s Fall 2023 Public Program.
