Project A.R.C.E.E
Every year the second year architecture students embark on a photography project. For many students this is the first time that they work with a DSL camera. The outcome of the 2017 cohort was phenomenal. The introduction to photography was arranged in five categories. Capturing texture on campus, reflect on the aftermath of the devastating fire, exploring and experimenting with balloons and strawberries. The exhibition of the work is currently on at the Department of Architecture.

The third exhibition of the first year Design Research Laboratory and Architectural Presentation Technqiues presents The Homo Spaiens Corridor Five Cave Case Stidies. These caves include: Blombos Cave, Pinnacle Point Cave PP13B, Nelson Bay Main Cave and Klasies River Main Cave.
