People are key to the GSA’s growing success. Our part-time staff are drawn from practices across the Gauteng region and are complemented by full-time staff and international visiting professors and research fellows who combine teaching and practice in ground-breaking and innovative ways. Our staff travel regularly, giving talks and lectures/workshops across Africa and overseas, and examine at other schools of architecture both at home and abroad, ensuring that our work is both relevant and cutting-edge.

Part-timers, drawn from all sectors of the world of practice, make up the bulk of our teaching staff. We are a young faculty, with the majority of part-time tutors in their early and mid-career stages, supported by a growing body of experienced international visiting professors from Europe, USA and Hong Kong.

We are committed to growing the next generation of African architectural academics and part-time tutors, and each year, a number of Unit Assistant positions are made available to our top students who may be interested in joining the staff.
