    Apartheid: Past And Present In Cape Town, South Africa

    Author:

Abstract

My first introduction to apartheid was as a naïve African child learning about Nelson Mandela as the epitome of leadership. As a budding architect confronting my Blackness in the ‘white man’s land’ (UK), I ponder colonisation and how deeply entrenched it is in the makeup of societies. With an interest in politics, people and urbanism, South Africa provides a good framework to explore the spatial manifestation of racism through design and politics.
