​Professor Ikem Stanley Okoye gave a talk last November titled “Circa 1912: Africa’s New Way Architecture (NWA)” that challenged the relegation of Africa to the status of foil in the construction of modernism’s architectural history, during the 4th convening of the Architectural Research in Europe Network Association (ARENA) conference “A World of Architectural History.” Its sessions were mainly held at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London. In addition, Okoye was invited to partake in what turned out to be a spirited evening roundtable at the Royal Institute of British Architects where, with other leading scholars, a discussion concerning “The Objects of Architectural History” was held. Okoye argued for an ecologically nuanced basis for what to regard as significant for global histories of architecture, given our recent recognition of the sophistication of indigenous knowledges regarding our critical relationship to other beings, animals, plants and material.
