Change the world



The second year architecture students embarked on their third design project for the year, the design of a house situated at Schoenmakerskop. The house for the family of four loves the outdoors and in touch with their roots in South Africa, is looking for a humble, site-specific house at Schoenmakerskop.

To engage with the design project, the second year students and their lecturers kicked off the project with getting to know the area of “Schoenies,” by walking the Sacramento Trail, which is rich in history, stories and emotion.

The picture below. Taken by Christiaan van der Merwe, tell the story of the engagement, laughter and learning. Also experience the walk with us, by watching the video made by Willie van der Merwe, one of Second year students.

The project is due on 29 March 2017.
