The project involves a soon-to-be exhausted copper mine, Ruashi mine, in Lubumbashi, D.R.Congo. By the time 2020, the mine would be left as an huge urban void next surrounded by the rapidly expanding city. Embracing the ‘left-over’, e.g. the mine, waste soil and sulfuric acid from acid mine drainage, from the former copper production, I see it as an oppurtunity in creation and continuation.
