Contemporary South African Architecture in a Landscape of Transition
Double Storey Books, 2006 - Architecture - 211 pages
Through both text and full-color photographs this book explores the ways in which local architects have contributed to change in this country through their work and to the development of a new sense of cultural identity. The focus is on buildings that create beauty from utility and need, that respect their place in the landscape, that connect people to their social and physical environment, and that unlock the potential of cities to amaze and astound. This book will bring South African architecture to the center of the international architectural debate.
