The 2nd year design class AA2 at the NMMU Department of Architecture has put together an installation for the AfrikaBurn arts festival. The project aims to offer students to experience a hands on approach towards the learning of architecture and exposure to the SA arts culture. The architectural content explores the issue of separation and place in architecture.
The exhibition entitled PALLADIO AND THE MODERN shows the first two projects of the first year students just arrived from school with little experience in architectural drawings and building architectural models.
Their dedicated commitment to the task given, 288 drawings and 144 models in total 432 exhibition pieces, forms part of a three year research program of 2013, 2014 and 2015 in architectural composition given by the Senior Lecturer Arch. Ernst Struwig, Dr. Magda Minguzzi and Arch. Jean-Pierre Basson.
Palladio and the Modern
