An Evening with Kunlé Adeyemi
In this edition of An Evening With – a series of conversations with emerging and established voices from the design world – we welcome Kunlé Adeyemi. Together with the architect, we talk about his practice, inspirations and fascinations, and his new publication African Water Cities which will be launched this evening. This event is moderated by architect Aura Luz Melis.
22 June 2023 17:30 - 19:00
Kunlé Adeyemi was born in Nigeria and lives and works in the Netherlands. Together with his agency NLÉ, for the past decade he has been researching the relationship between cities and water, rising sea levels and housing shortages. He studies coastal African cities where rapid urbanisation and rising water levels are leading to major challenges and innovative solutions.
During this evening, the publication African Water Cities is presented to the public for the first time. The publication presents research on African water cities and how they deal with the two most important trends of our time: urbanisation and climate change.
