The Curators Welcome!

Greetings to all our CPDI Africa friends and family across the world. We are pleased to announce and celebrate our upcoming initiatives for CPDI Africa 2021: The African Heritage Architecture Exposition.

This year we introduce some of the most innovative projects developed along our pioneering journey.  First, we inaugurate the CPDI Africa Global Studio for African Centered Architecture, the first academic platform of its kind for teaching a new pedagogy in architecture and design. Next, we launch our 4th Annual African Architecture Competition, organized to promote new design languages developed by Afrocentric architects throughout Africa and the Diaspora.

We have much more to engage your creative Genius so do come along & contribute your voices.

CPDI Africa remains an integral part of promoting the African Diasporas contribution to the global discourse in architecture.

Welcome from CPDI Africa!
