To each his own house. Housing in Belgian Congo : 1945 – 1960

As a counterpoint to Jean Prouvé's Maison tropicale, an icon of modern architecture that remains a prototype and is shown at the Kanal Brut exhibit in Kanal - Centre Pompidou, CIVA offers an exhibition made from its own archives, showing the reality of what was built in the Belgian Congo in the post-war years: responses to the housing crisis, technical experiments and adaptation to climate, tropical modernism, metropolitan architecture, and of course, spatial translation of social segregation.

Curator : Johan Lagae
