Celebrate design with SAIA and World Design Capital Cape Town 2014 at the V&A Waterfront! What does the mantle ‘World Design Capital’ mean for architects and the built environment in Cape Town, South Africa and the region? SAIA answers this question at ArchitecureZA, 19-20 November 2013, V&A Waterfront, Cape Town.
WORKSHOP CPD = 1.5 CAT 1
As the design spotlight is turned upon us, how do we respond? At first we look around us nervously wondering what will the world make of us! So much of our environment was not formally designed, and a fair percentage was badly designed. We can’t redesign our city/s in the next 12 months! We can celebrate the excellent work however, and in the process create a vision of the built environment we desire, one which we could hold up to the world with pride and say look: this is our architecture, our unique heritage, our auspicious present, and our bright future.
World Design Capital, Cape Town 2014 is an opportunity for architectural expression, at the smallest and largest scale and every scale in between. Now is the time for creativity and ingenuity, to take the heritage we have, along with the glamorous new buildings and the not so glamorous shanties.
