This critical study provides ideas about new directions in South African architecture, about how new approaches to design may provide fresh opportunities for relevance and about how the new collection of problems which the architect faces embodies a multiplicity of learning possibilities. Of particular relevance is the whole issue of 'African' and learning from the rich and numerous legacies which make up the South African architectural landscape and the spatial patterns of daily life. Thus 'Africanisation' is considered, not as an image-making process, but as an opportunity to engage with African philosophical ideas where the textures and senses of history become points of departure.
