Canteen. Aarhus School of Architecture, Denmark




In late February and early March 2019, a group of students and tutors from Studio 3 and Unit F made a joint venture to Cuba and accomplished a plan, including fieldwork, visits, lectures, excursions, and participation in a conference. Among many other discoveries, the multi-layered architectural heritage of Havana, made of transformations, juxtapositions, and densifications over time, stands out as an extremely inspirational new way of looking at the constructed environment. The exhibition offers selected fragments of Cuba´s extraordinary daily life, an experience encompassing videos, music and food.
