Abstract

NDLTD Innovative ETD Award 2005.

The design of a multi-functional building entails the synthesis of multiple systems and networks. The needs of multiple clients must be effectively overlaid to create a build able, contextually suitable and aesthetically pleasing architectural solution.

The proposed building is a public, urban building. City buildings consist of spaces that are essentially part of the city, simultaneously dependant on the whole and separated by building lines and security systems. The gradation of space from public to private exists everywhere. The focus of the design is on the creation of place in the Pretoria CBD. The scheme is integrated into its surroundings, and functions as a system in itself.

The proposed multi-use building will be set on a currently built up site in the Pretoria CBD, on the c/o Paul Kruger and Schoeman Streets, one city block from Church Square. Building functions include retail, residential, a satellite gallery for the Tshwane Art Museum, and new offices and facilities for Talking Beads, a producer Arts and Crafts.
