Today we've unveiled our Arts Centre in Kampala, Uganda for 32° East | Ugandan Arts Trust. See the piece here in the Architects Journal.
Designed to utilise local techniques and handmade bricks, the proposed project will be made up of a campus of pavilions that integrate the landscape into the centre’s activities. It will become the new home for the not-for-profit organisation 32° East | Ugandan Arts Trust, which promotes African art and supports artists in residence from Uganda and across Africa.

This week 32° East | Ugandan Arts Trust purchased the site for their new home, this is the first step towards realising their goal of a permanent space for the centre and its community of artists. We're absolutely thrilled here at Periscope and look forward to developing our initial ideas into a wonderful arts campus for the centre.
We're really excited about our beach hut entry which has been short listed in the Eastbourne Beach Huts competition. They'll be a public exhibition of all the shortlisted entries between 9th - 14th March 2016 in Eastbourne, click here for more.
We've been longlisted for our Eastbourne beach huts proposal, the beach hut will feature as one of five to be built and will form part of the culture trail linking the Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne, the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill and the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings.
We're delighted to be working with 32° East | Ugandan Arts Trust on their new arts centre, collaborating with local contemporary artists to make a delicious, productive and creative space in the heart of the wonderful and bustling city of Kampala.
