Forgetting Architecture is a three-day event held from 29 July - 1 August which sees four international guests join Prof Lesley Lokko, Dr Huda Tayob and Craig McClenaghan for a series of talks, students reviews and discussions on the theme of memory and architecture, specifically on the role of practices at the edges of architecture (film, performance, landscape and narrative). Over the next three weeks, we’ll be profiling our speakers and sharing details of this exciting event. All talks are free and open to the public, and will be held at GSA Metro at 68 Juta Street, Braamfontein, Johannesburg.
