The interactive and multi-disciplinary show reflects on the common ground between design, culture and context looking especially at African inner-city public spaces.
The exhibition includes street photography by Sally Gaulle and a spotlight on 15 different architectural projects and concepts, grouped under six key themes, that speak directly to the complexities of shaping the cities of the future. From Africa's rapid urbanisation and changing natural environment to the ever-increasing requests for 'Instagrammable' features and the differing needs of the urban populace, the exhibition is designed as a starting point for a dialogue on what architects can do to better shape cities to meet the needs of the people.
The exhibition is hosted in John Moffat Foyer, on the University of the Witwatersrand East Campus in Braamfontein. Admission is free.
