GSA Summer Show 2020

Save the Date! 📣 26th November 2020. Intimate Frames: GSA Summer Show 2020 This year has seen spatial spillages of the world into our homes - the home holding as a loose epicentre for drawn in spatial imaginaries. Mothers bring in fruit during our Zoom calls, hadedas croon in over the microphone. This, while we pursue Namibia, Dar Es Salaam, the City of Tshwane, Cairo, and inner-city Johannesburg through our laptop screens, our Instagram reel, while sitting at the dinner table, on our beds or at our home work-desk. Domestic life spills over into conversations concerning political frameworks, gender equality, identity, edge conditions, economies and all sorts of global processes at play, in space. GSA Summer Show retreats into intimate views: Celebrating the immense resilience and ingenuity of our students, and the care of our staff, we invite you to share, from your own bedrooms, lounges or kitchens, in this year’s show, promising to be a digital collective experience like no other!

GSA Lecture - WAI Think Tank with Cruz Garcia and Nathalie Frankowski

GSA Lecture: WAI Architecture Think Tank with Cruz Garcia and Nathalie Frankowski, Friday 27th Nov 2020, 6pm - 8pm SAST. Cruz Garcia and Nathalie Frankowski (WAI Think Tank) are currently Associate Professors at Virginia Tech. Their recently published Manual of Anti-Racist Architecture Education (https://waithinktank.com/Anti-Racist-Education-Manual) posits a powerful and timely rethinking of how contemporary architectural education is observed to embody issues of social injustice and institutional racism. Architectural history and theory is critiqued through the deployment of subverted seminal modern graphic motifs to reframe commonly accepted premises. The GSA hopes to be engaging closely with WAI Think Tank next year and this lecture will serve to introduce and welcome this important new voice to the GSA.

    Our quest for the epitome of architecture, in education and in practice, should be to design quality liveable spaces for all in society.

    Architecture truly happens when one is given the freedom to explore that which is not conventional.

    We happen to be alive in an epoch of new, exhilarant and unequaled constructs of time, place and conditions - which, with our agency, are capable of producing extraordinary environments. That is especially true of here. The future must be African.

    Architecture enables us to simultaneously reflect on the past and forecast new futures. Even at its most understated, architecture inherently looks forward.
