GSA leads the way in celebrating African architectural talent in its International Lecture Series
Homegrown is a social media and print campaign that celebrates the African talent in our GSA-Boogertman + Partners International Lecture Series. Each week, we will release a short description, video link (if available) and information about the amazing line-up of African and architects who've spoken in the series since it began in 2016. The series is listed alphabetically and draws conceptually on the idea of the periodic table. Each description will have a link to the introductions that we've made over the years, an interesting and perhaps unknown fact about the speaker and the date of their lecture. All Africans, including South Africans and Africans-in-the-Diaspora, are included. At our last count, we've had 31 African speakers out of a total of 47, which is something worth celebrating, particularly in this very difficult week in South Africa.
