Ruwenzori Sculpture Foundation

Competition for sculpture foundry in Uganda

d u s t was asked to enter a competition to design a sculpture foundry and artists houses in a remote part of Uganda. As runners up, our entry for contemporary, zero carbon spaces – designed in conjunction with Arup Associates and Pangolin Foundry – went down very well with the judges. The essence of our design was about using simple technology to create freestanding enclosures covered by various interpretations of a ‘super roof’ – each nestled up against or through a gabion wall spanning the width of the site.
