"My practice is focused on finding design form and design expression, which brings together a multitude of voices from across the African continent and beyond", says Sumayya Vally. The architect gives a lecture and participates in a discussion to open the jubilee season of the Architektur.Film.Sommer film festival. The 10th season is dedicated to 'Decolonizing Architecture'. Join us afterwards for the Az W Summer Party.

With the South African architecture collective Counterspace Studio, which she co-founded, Sumayya Vally was responsible for the London Serpentine Pavilion in 2021 and has created a temple for everyday life that negotiates the themes of identity, community, belonging and coming together. How are architectural practices currently changing in the face of reflections on colonial entanglements and global contexts? Research, experiences and perspectives between the global North and South are engaged with in a dialogue with Vienna-based architect Marlene Wagner.

We cordially invite you to celebrate with us!
