about

Twenty years after the end of Apartheid and the inauguration of an inclusive democracy in South Africa, Cape Town is still working through Apartheid's urban legacy. The aftershocks of Apartheid spatial policy, combined with a middle-class ideal of single-family homes on individual plots of land, have produced endemic urban sprawl in Cape Town, causing significant economic, environmental and social problems in the city. Can we envisage a more compact and dense Cape Town, organized to ameliorate ingrained patterns of unequal spatial division? Cape Town presents the provocative proposals of an international team of theorists, architects and planners, challenging the prevailing ideas on urban development in Cape Town and offering inspiring alternatives.
