Concrete cube seats – TUT architecture students
In the fourth year design studio, students have been creating concrete furniture since 2014 as part of Pretoria’s Cool Capital Biennale. Designers were coupled with sculpture studios and they were each tasked to produce a concrete bench sponsored by PPC cement. A series of ten benches were designed by our students and manufactured in various studios. The pieces were placed around Pretoria at important nodes including the Natural History Museum, Museum Africa, Church Square and the Union buildings. The placement was done guerrilla-style, meaning no prior arrangements were made with the authorities before installation at the identified locations. The project garnered some interest and before long council members were posing and taking pictures on the benches.
The experience of producing a full-scale object used by citizens was a valuable one. A smaller modular unit was established in the form of a 400mm cube that acts as a seat. It should be cheap and light enough for each individual student to create, and when arranged collectively the units should read as a whole installation. The first installation was done in 2017 at TUT’s department of architecture’s courtyard on the main campus. The 2018 exhibition pieces will first be placed on WF Nkomo street across the road from the Reserve Bank at the 012Central entrance. The installation will find a permanent place of exhibition at bus stops on George Storrar drive in Groenkloof, Pretoria.
(Thank you designers, the Cool Capital team, Wilkinson Architects, Newtown Landscape Architects, Shaun Wilkinson (the ward counsellor of Muckleneuk & Sunnyside) and City Property. The project is supervised by Pieter Greyvensteyn, Navarre Eberson, Laura-Anne Anderson and Dr. Emmanuel Nkambule.)
