Defining a relevant architecture in South Africa
Sanders, Paul S. (2000) Defining a relevant architecture in South Africa. arq: Architectural Research Quarterly, 4(1), pp. 67-80.
Architecture in South Africa is at a crossroads. Afteryears of repression and isolation during which contemporary architecture lost its way, there is now a desperate need for architects to respond to the social a nd cultural challenges of a society riven by massive material contrasts. Within architecture schools, a student body more representative of society than hitherto is engaged in projects which reflect the very diverse needs of the community. Central to the effectiveness of such teaching programmes is the presence of teachers fully engaged in practice, creating a responsible architecture fora renewed nation.
