- 17:00 – 19:00 WORKSHOP: FILM INFORMING DESIGN THINKING IN THE URBAN REALM
What if we designed the perfect apartment block for a city like Cape Town? What would it look like, but more importantly how have film and visuals projecting and featuring apartment block-living influenced our design thinking? And, where does such design thinking currently sit within an African context, where cities are rapidly growing as a result of urbanisation. Do we have a chance to do it differently?
Working in groups, participants from different disciplines will co-design visions and elements of a modern day African apartment block that fits in with the ideals, visions, concepts or dreams of a world class, liveable African City.
