Envisioning MultipliCITY Event Highlights:
Expressions Of Identity And Design In Our Communities.
CPDI Africa & The Art of African Architecture Exhibition!

Thanks to NOMA Houston for a Grand Welcoming of The Community Planning & Design Initiative Africa!  Much appreciation to our Co-Presenter, Professor David Hughes, FAIA, our Partners, Sponsors, and Distinguished Jury Members. CPDI Africa presented at NOMA National Conference 2017, in Houston Texas, in following with this year’s theme, “MultipliCITY: Our Abstract Composition”, CPDI Africa challenges creatives in the built environment to envision place and space, as designed by and for the diverse communities of the African Diaspora. What architectural expressions would we create if our communities were built in our own image: from Houston to Jamaica, from Compton to Cairo, from Atlanta to Abuja, from Johannesburg to Kinshasa. ‘Multiplicity’ expressed in a plethora of cultures, aesthetics and materiality, inspired by the depth and diversity of our story. The Art of African Architecture Exhibition and Seminar promotes Afrofuturism and the built environment with winning architectural designs from professionals all over the world. Join us at NOMA National Conference 2018, Chicago Illinois!
