Join us for a celebration of student award winners of the GSA-CWGC competition held in February this year. Open to all GSA past and present students and staff! 


Wednesday 19th August 2020


The Commonwealth War Graves Commission South African Memorial Design competition was created to invite new and innovative ideas for the design of a new standalone memorial for South Africa. Through the competition, the CWGC seeks to source a diverse range of responses that commemorate, by name, the sacrifice of the fallen and reflects the culture of the South African people. Designs were invited, that were to be site-sensitive, affordable and respond to a contemporary South African context, sited in Cape Town. They were undertaken by student groups at the Graduate School of Architecture, UJ, to inform the eventual memorial to be created by a South African architect. 


Keep watch on our social media channels for an announcement of the winning 3 finalist student submissions!
