EXHIBITION: 'LEVE KANPE : The Iron Market'
Exhibition extended until 27th May 2011

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.
