The final two firms to round up the 11-strong line-up are SAOTA and ARRCC, who will be curating the exhibition, together with OKHA.

The exhibition will consist of carefully curated prints, giving viewers access and insight into the planning and conceptual approaches the firms take on their respective projects.

ARRCC’s director Jon Case and interior designer Ryan Olivier explain, “Our concept pays homage to an unearthed idea of a shelter and a link to community within a contemporary African aesthetic. We love the idea that as African architects and designers we can curate our diverse influences and combine them to create a refined contemporary aesthetic.”
