FOLIO is Africa’s first internationally peer-reviewed journal of contemporary African architecture, published by GSA IMPRINTS each year.
Our aim? Simple. To become Africa’s leading postgraduate school of architecture by 2025.
The GSA (Graduate School of Architecture) at the University of Johannesburg founded in 2015 with a simple mandate: to transform contemporary African architectural education. Located in Johannesburg, one of the world’s most exciting and challenging cities, we aim to offer a world-class architectural educational experience to our students. We are the continent’s only dedicated post-graduate school of architecture and the only African school to offer the world-renowned Unit System way of teaching, first pioneered by London’s Architectural Association in the 1970s. The African continent is a uniquely challenging and creative laboratory which gives our students and tutors the edge in finding and exploring new ways to think and do work.
