FNB Foundation and Directorate of Arts co-fund book publication

The FNB Foundation has generously provided funding the publication of the "Legacies of a Colonial Town" book. This forms part of the ongoing project “Legacies of a Colonial Town” at the Department of Architecture and Spatial Planning that goes back to 2012, when the then Department of Architecture was approached by the British Council in London, through the Directorate of Arts at the Ministry of Youth, National Service Sport and Culture to develop an exhibition on Namibia's architecture and design for the 2012 International Architecture and Design Showcase in London.

NASA takes off

Two is better than one. Architecture is no exception. The architect may seem to get all the credit, but the success of any project depends on the smooth collaboration of the team. This is just one reason why the Namibian Architecture Student Association (NASA) was officially established by a handful of students in 2013.

For the Pure Joy of Architecture

Semester one in the second-year design studio has just flown by; who ever said that studying architecture was not fun? I think it was Voltaire who said “The more I read, the more I acquire, the more certain I am that I know nothing.” I certainly enjoy teaching due to the fact that I get to “study” architecture all over again!
