Architectural & Art tours - CPD accredited

Designer-led tours of two of Joburg’s new architectural landmarks will take place on Thursday 19th May and Friday 20th May.

Tour of The Bank with Daffonchio Architects

The Bank, designed by Daffonchio Architects, is an exciting new mixed-use development in the hub of Rosebank, which includes tenants such as VOCO hotel, Proud Mary and Workshop 17, and includes an extensive art collection curated by Art Gazette (not to mention a massive mural by SA artist Cameron Platter). The 2021 Gifa Awards noted The Bank’s “striking balance of grandeur and charm” and its “seamless assimilation into the context” while giving back generously to its urban surrounds and contributing to the vibrant, walkable Rosebank precinct and its unique character.

Date & Time:

Thursday 19th of May from 09:30  to 11.30 (Capacity 20 pax)

Price:

R250 (General public)

R125 (For members of GIFA, SAIA)

All visitors attending the Architecture tours will get free access to Design Joburg at the Sandton Convention Centre.

 

The Leonardo in Sandton

Africa’s tallest building, the Leonardo, at 5752 stories is a feat of engineering and architectural ambition, and is within easy walking distance from the SCC for in-person tours. Led by a majority women-team at Co-Arc International Architects, the building has proved transformative in many surprising ways, not least its contextually appropriate unique design and construction approaches and its focus on creating job opportunities and contributing to the local economy. Apart from the architecture, the building is remarkable for its thousands-strong art collection, much of it specially curated and commissioned for the building by art consultants The Trinity Sessions. These include artworks on the scale of Mbongeni Buthelezi’s 20m-long, two-storey high mural and Damien Grivas’s geological sculpture that fills the stairwell connecting the ground floor entrance to the reception level above. 

Date & Time:

Tour 1: Thursday 19th of May from 09:00 to11.30 (Capacity 20 pax)

Tour 2: Thursday 19th of May from 13:00 to 15:30 (Capacity 20 pax)

Tour 3: Friday 20th of May from 09:00 to11.30 (Capacity 20 pax)

Price:

R250 (General public)

R125 (For members of GIFA, SAIA)
