“Ode to an Architect” Film Screening | Friday 7 July | The Drawing Room.

Matri-Archi will be screening it’s new film “Ode to an Architect” this Friday at the Drawing Room! The film will be submitted as an entry to the Africa Architecture Awards as a space for critical dialogue.

Written through the lens of a Black Womxn, Matri-Archi aims at creating a space where the work and writings of multiple and marginalized identity groups can be discussed and given space to flourish. Matri-Archi is here to challenge universal epistemologies of architecture, design and space. Matri-Archi is a space that encourages various forms of representation and communication and is not prescribed solely to architectural articulation.

The event will encapsulate a space of all visuals and senses.
