SpainGSD: Daniel Fraile, “From Virtual to Real: Architectural Practice in African Contexts”

This lecture explores the dynamics of contemporary practice in African contexts. Derived by the consecuences of the 2008 financial crisis, Arquivio Arquitectura, along with many other Spanish architecture practices, turned its focus and geography of practice toward Africa. Today, seven years after, Daniel Fraile will report on the opportunities and challenges of architectural practice there though a series of projects covering its entire process, “from virtual to real”.

This event is organized by SpainGSD, Urban Metabolism Student Group, and Harvard Spain Student Association.
