Universidade Agostinho Neto Included in the Africa BIG Exhibition at Triennale di Milano

The Perkins+Will-designed campus for Universidade Agostinho Neto, in Luanda, Angola, is now on display as part of the “AFRICA: Big Change Big Chance” exhibition at the Triennale di Milano in Milan, Italy. The new national university is sited on a 5,000-acre green field site southeast of Luanda. Perkins+Will’s master plan is designed to accommodate 40,000 students when all phases are complete.

Running from October 15 through December 28, the exhibition is devoted to Africa, a continent in which some of the most interesting phenomena of recent years are taking shape, ranging from great demographic to climate and social changes. International institutions forecast that the urban population will reach 748 million in 2030, surpassing the total figure for Europe, at 685 million. A series of thematic sections will examine the architecture and the great territorial changes affecting the African continent.
