The building for the centre for youth sub cultural expression focuses on the idea of resistance as form giver in architecture.

Resistance [a notion to dislike of or opposition to a plan, an idea] refusal to obey. The aim of the discourse is to express how an abject psychological perception of a group can be transformed positively through architecture. Architecture should not just become a sculptural manifestation but should communicate and respond to its context. The goal is to create an environment that acts as a platform for sub cultural expression but also becomes a domain for youth identity formation. The emphasis is on the exposure of sub cultural arts and artists, thereby potentially establishing a foundation where the South African visual culture can be booted by a fresh and youthful injection of ideas, medium and content.
