The cave - both as a physical space and a metaphor - is a provocation to test the limits of contemporary architecture. It invites new thinking about how architecture can adapt to a more community-focused, ecologically sensitive, low-carbon future. This publication and the accompanying sixth exhibition in The Architect's Studio series at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art are dedicated to the Kenyan architects Cave_bureau. In it, Stella Mutegi and Kabage Karanja from Cave_bureau describe eight of their projects. Stunning visuals are accompanied by essays poignantly asking questions about the future of architecture in the age of the Anthropocene, the effects of colonial extraction, the erasure on African architecture and the specificity of continents and geographic spaces.
