A presentation of contemporary and site-specific projects from the fields of architecture, urban research and planning, to mark 30 years of post-apartheid South Africa.

How has the South African architectural landscape changed over the last 30 years? What democratic spaces have emerged and what are the challenges they face? The event presents pioneering architectural projects and addresses the social, economic and political impact of the post-apartheid era on urban and spatial development.
