AZA Pavillon "Taking the Gap" was realised on Mary Fitzgerald Square in Johannesburg

'Taking the Gap' is built in ecologically sound, locally-manufactured sustainable (and innovative) building materials on Mary Fitzgerald Square for the ArchitectureZA2010 Festival, 21-27 September 2010, to comprise a to-scale example of a ‘GAP’ house within an Integrated Housing Model Proposal that challenges – financially, spatially and materially – the current ‘one man-one plot’ zoned social housing (RDP and Affordable) models to which South Africa is currently subject.

This project won the third price at the international competition URBANINFORM, last December in New York.

Enjoy some of the images of the pavilion.
