RAW Académie Resource Lounge

About

Below are a list of resources that have been foundational to how the RAW Académie at ICA: Infrastructure program and exhibition has come into being. Most of the publications are available for visitors to consult in the Reading Lounge currently installed at the ICA. At RAW Material Company in Dakar, Senegal, a Reading Room has also been developed for the public, to bring our communities in Philadelphia and Dakar together around our shared thinking and research.

The collection of resources will continue to evolve along with the program.
