Our Architect’s Gallery was manna for architects. Designed and built by SAOTA, ARRCC and OKHA in partnership with VISI, the space itself was a work of art and played host to a showcase of the country’s eminent architecture studios displaying projects from all over the continent.
We were honoured to have SAOTA, ARRCC and OKHA curating the space and showcasing exemplary residential and commerial architecure projects with a great line-up of studios including SAOTA, ARRCC, Boogertman & Partners, Studio Mas, W Design Architecture Studio, Lesley Carstens & Silvio Rech, AMA Architects, VDMMA Architect, JVR Architects and GASS Architects.
'Our concept paid homage to an unearthed idea of a shelter and a link to community within a Contemporary African Aesthetic. Our recent Cheetah Plains project featured on our exhibition is connected to the same ideals. The Structure explored the manipulation of form creating apertures for people to interact and experience the space on both a physical and sensory level', says Jon Case, Director at ARRCC, 'We also chosen to curate this feature as Design Joburg showcases the top South African Designers and Architects and we didn’t want to miss the opportunity. SAOTA, ARRCC and OKHA, despite our global reach is still distinctly South African, so we wanted to take some time to be more involved in the show.'
