Chorus Architecture is a multidisciplinary platform for research and development in architecture and related fields (art, design, environment, sustainable development, etc.), which reflects on the reallocation of endogenous knowledge. In order to change the system of values and the factors of perception that force each person to focus on a "distant" and ideal when it comes to finding a solution to the daily problem. An initiative born in Cameroon, Chorus Architecture wants to create a convergence of ideas that have not yet been explored.

The world is deeply affected by the global pandemic of the coronavirus. In addition to the threat to public health, economic and social upheaval threatens the livelihoods and long-term well-being of millions of people.
This is why Chorus Architecture and its partners are advocating for new housing, more concerned with the art of living. Not only for reasons of containment or sanitary measures but also with a view to sustainability while preparing for future treatments. Living spaces must be standardised and open to complexity, centred on man and his relationship with the environment. A post-carbon world must be possible in every intervention, bearing in mind that the construction sector accounts for a third of carbon emissions and that technology is changing the way we interact in cities, both inside and outside.
Architects have a real role to play, hence the theme chosen for this 4th annual archi talk conference is: post covid resilience of the built space. Several speakers are expected such as:
- Leonardo Dias (Architect, Base colab, BRAZIL), who said: COVID-19 has had many consequences. Among them, we find issues related to housing and the organization of space. Lessons learned from this health crisis should be drawn to rethink the built environment of tomorrow.
- Mojtaba Naghizadeh (Architect and researcher, EV Design, IRAN)
- Otham Kandri (Architect, Zaha Hadid, ENGLAND),
- Hermann Kamté (architect, HKA, CAMEROON)
Location: Blakitude Museum in Yaounde, Cameroon
