'LEVE KANPE : The Iron Market', Haiti


Leve Kanpe is Haitian Creole for ‘Stand Up' in the sense of standing proud. This sentiment embodies what the Iron Market represents: the rebuilding of a proud Haitian symbol of hope and unity. The Iron Market, originally build in 1891, is one of the most significant cultural and historic architectural landmarks in Haiti. Decimated by a fire in 2008 and further catastrophically damaged by the 2010 earthquake, John McAslan + Partners was the lead architect of its reconstruction. As the commercial and social hub of Port-au-Prince, the nation's capital, the opening of the Iron Market is a key milestone for Haiti. This exhibition tells the extraordinary story of the Iron Market, the first building to be rebuilt after the devastation, and a symbol of hope in Haiti. For more information on the Iron Market Exhibition, and the events and lectures surrounding it, please contact Marika at gallery@mcaslan.co.uk
