Beau­ti­ful de­sign should be for ev­ery­one, not just the rich.

since 2013 I have been work­ing on a place­mak­ing project that I ini­ti­ated with the City of Jo­han­nes­burg and the Pas­sen­ger rail as­so­ci­a­tion of south africa and ar­chi­tect david ad­jaye at Jo’burg’s main trans­port hub, Park sta­tion. an el­e­ment of the project is an ur­ban pavil­ion pro­vid­ing a place of ar­rival and wel­come, a place for art per­for­mances and in­stal­la­tions. Yet there were some who be­lieved the project should be moved to sand­ton as the project would be bet­ter ap­pre­ci­ated there. They missed the point of the project, and that forms a part of the prob­lem with place­mak­ing ef­forts in south african cities.
