30 September 2010 @ 5.30 for 6pm
@ CIFA – Sound Space Design: The Architecture of Don Albert & Partners
Please note this event will take place at CIFA, 71 Hout Street, Cape Town
This monograph enacts the carefully considered genre-breaking irreverence at the core of Don Albert & Partners internationally recognised work. At once didactic yet reflexive, Sound Space Design challenges the restrained tradition of the typical architectural publication through an original taxonomy that explains the theory behind some of South Africa’s most striking buildings since democracy. As a collection of both award-winning buildings and forward-looking theoretical projects, this book operates as an archive of carefully selected drawings, renderings and photographs that illustrate the firm’s most beautiful and inspiring creativity to date – an essential resource for the academy, practitioners, and all those passionate about innovative design.
There will be a champagne reception and preview of the book and accompanying DVD, and a brief presentation by author Don Albert.
Speakers for a panel discussion: Prof. Iain Low, Editor DIGEST of South African Architecture, Mokena Makeka, Makeka Design Lab, Cape Town, Sean O’Toole, Former editor, Art South Africa, Nic Coetzer, Senior Lecturer, University of Cape Town
