The Design Africa Symposium, with the theme ‘Design Visions for African Cities of the Future’, comprised of
a series of conversations with international and local voices on the contemporary condition of African cities. It featured design practitioners from across the African continent and diaspora which included Angela Mingas (Angola), Joe Addo (Ghana), Sithabile Mathe (Botswana) and – from South Africa – Edgar Pieterse, Iain Louw, Ruben Reddy, Rashiq Fataar and Luyanda Mpahlwa. The objective was to analyse the urban development challenges facing African cities and to map out possible visions to re-shape African city environments into the future.
