2nd Year Students engage with Architectural Masterpiece

The current design project has been possible through the generosity of Peter and Konstanze Strack. Several visits were made by the students to their house in Windhoek that Peter designed and constructed in 1972. The detailed history of design, construction and subsequent modifications, gave the students an opportunity to appreciate how a successful example of domestic architecture evolves over time.

Bricks in their Places...

With the external examiners / moderators come and gone, the students, like ants escaping from rainfall, have disappeared into their various homes for rest after “long” months of work. But for the staff, it is work as usual. Besides the final compilation and submission of moderated marks, the need to ensure that all bricks are in place in preparation for the 2012 Academic Year is paramount. It is also the time for retro-inspection.According to the external examiners / moderators, the Department has come a long way after the hazy start of 2010.

Many Words for Modern

To round off the public program towards the end of the academic year 2011, the Department invites you all to a film screening followed by a short debate on modern architectural heritage in Africa, a topic that is hardly addressed in architectural circles.
