Event | dhk opens its doors as part of Open Studios 2018
Open Studios returned to Cape Town once again, with architecture practices across the city opening their doors to the public on 3 and 4 December 2018. Now in its sixth year, the event invited people inside the architecture studios responsible for shaping the buildings and city around us, giving visitors the opportunity to meet the architects behind the projects and to see the diverse creative spaces in which design takes place.
One of the most popular events on the design calendar, this year’s event focused on two main hubs: CBD and East City. The participating studios opened after hours and guests were able to chat to architects about their work and process of design.
Each studio offered their own curated display of work, including current and future projects, presentations, architectural models and animations.
Architecture studios taking part include:
- dhk Architects
- Fabian and Make Architects
- GAPP Architects, Urban Designers
- Jenny Mills Architecture
- Meyer & Associates
- Peerutin Architects
- SAOTA, ARCC, Tenebris Lab, Okha
- SSH Design
- Team Architects
- VDMMA at The Architect Gallery
- Wolff Architects
Open Studios is a joint initiative by the South African Institute for Architecture (SAIA) and the Cape Institute for Architecture (CIFA). The programme this year forms part of a broader week of architectural celebrations in Cape Town including the Cape Institute for Architecture’s annual street party, First Thursdays and the SAIA Honours Awards and Presidential Inauguration.
