InCommon The Possibilities of Collective Space

Thursday Feb 20 - Saturday Mar 14    
At the beginning of each year, the University of the Witwatersrand School of Architecture and Planning presents an exhibition that features the work and research of a different practice in which the school is involved. InCommon is an initiative created to explore multi-disciplinary design opportunities. This year's exhibition is presented by Bob van Bebber and Nisha van der Hoven from the architectural design firm Boogertman and Partners with FuturePart.

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.
