Winner of the AJ Small Projects Sustainability Award

Following a design competition we were very pleased to be chosen as architects for a new art foundry for the Ruwenzori Sculpture Foundation in western Uganda. The Foundation is a charity set up by the directors of the Pangolin Editions (the leading bronze casting foundry) and Parabola Land. The project involves the design and construction of a foundry and gallery along with residential accommodation for staff and visiting artists.

“Where resources are scarce, necessity dictates lean use of materials. The marriage of natural and industrial materials results in an elegant simplicity, which could be more widely emulated in sustainable design.”
