“A quintessential white cube designed by OMA has been inaugurated on a former unilever plantation in the democratic republic of the Congo. Located in Lusanga, a town 650 Kilometers southeast of the country’s capital, the institution seeks to attract both the financial backing, and the awareness needed for plantation workers to buy back land and develop a new economic and ecological model. the inauguration also marks the start of a five-year research program.”
