Honouring South African Architecture Excellence

For Immediate Release

Title: Architecture month

Johannesburg, 29 September 2023- South Africa is known for its rich cultural heritage, diverse landscapes, and remarkable architecture that tell stories of its past and present. Architectural professionals bring a unique blend of expertise that encompasses both artistic vision and technical knowledge to our built environment. Their role extends beyond mere design; they are instrumental in ensuring that construction projects align with environmental, social, and economic sustainability goals. By combining creativity with technical proficiency, architectural professionals have the ability to design spaces that minimise resource consumption, optimize energy efficiency, and enhance the well-being of our communities.

In the spirit of celebrating the profound contributions of our architectural professionals and their indelible impact on our nation's-built environment, Architecture Month will be celebrated  throughout October. We will have a special commemoration on 2 October 2023, under the theme -Architecture for Resilience Communities.

We pay tribute to the brilliance and creativity of South African architectural professionals who have transformed dreams into iconic structures that define our urban and rural landscapes.

  • As we celebrate architecture, we will be showcasing exceptional architectural design projects and innovative solutions that have shaped South African communities.
  • We also intend to educate the public about architecture month and raise awareness about the significance of architecture to create healthy living spaces.
  • Moreover, we will acknowledge and honour architectural professionals who contribute by designing building with delight spaces that lifts the spirit of our communities.
