Cross Cultural Exchange Atlantic World Angola And Brazil During Era Slave Trade :: African history :: Cambridge University Press | The Atlantic World | Scoop.it

"This book argues that Angola and Brazil were connected, not separated, by the Atlantic Ocean. Roquinaldo Ferreira focuses on the cultural, religious, and social impacts of the slave trade on Angola. Reconstructing biographies of Africans and merchants, he demonstrates how cross-cultural trade, identity formation, religious ties, and resistance to slaving were central to the formation of the Atlantic world. By adding to our knowledge of the slaving process, the book powerfully illustrates how Atlantic slaving transformed key African institutions, such as local regimes of forced labor that predated and coexisted with Atlantic slaving, and made them fundamental features of the Atlantic world's social fabric"

Another example of how the Atlantic was a highway of connections.

The Danish National Maritime Museum by BIG

The Danish National Maritime Museum by BIG | The Atlantic World | Scoop.it

The new Danish National Maritime Museum is located just north of Copenhagen and 10 km from the famous Louisiana Museum for Modern Art. The new 6,000 m⊃2; museum finds itself in a unique historical context adjacent to one of Denmark’s most important buildings, Kronborg Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site – known from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. It is the last addition to Kulturhavn Kronborg, a joint effort involving the renovation of the Castle and two new buildings – offering a variety of culture experiences to residents and visitors to Helsingør.

 

Bjarke Ingels: “By wrapping the old dock with the museum program we simultaneously preserve the heritage structure while transforming it to a courtyard bringing daylight and air in to the heart of the submerged museum. Turning the dock inside out resolved a big dilemma: Out of respect for Hamlet’s Castle we needed to remain completely invisible and underground – but to be able to attract visitors we needed a strong public presence. Leaving the dock as an urban abyss provides the museum with an interior façade facing the void and at the same time offers the citizens of Helsingør a new public space sunken 8 m below the level of the sea.”

This should be a museum to visit.

Cerca del Castillo de Kronsborg un museo muy atractivo que recupera en cierto modo el espíritu de la "promenade" arquitectónica de Le Corbusier.
