This dissertation focuses on architecture in the information age.Information technology is evolving at an alarming rate, which opens up a vast landscape of possibilities within the architectural realm. These possibilities are discussed and implemented into anarchitectural intervention, with a specific focus on the relationship between the real and the virtual. A digital art pavilion is proposed on the corner of Proes and van der Walt streets in Pretoria CBD, where the Munitoria Complex (Tshwane Municipal Offices) is currently situated. This intervention should act as a catalyst for positive change by narrowing the digital divide that is currently causing social and cultural segregation; providing a tool for upliftment by informing city dwellers. This negates the current "culture of ignorance" by stimulating a culture of knowledge.
