dc.description.abstract Major transportation and land use problems are experienced in the Menlyn precinct in Tshwane. Current infrastructure allows motor vehicles to dominate public transport and pedestrian thoroughfare. Pedestrians and motor vehicles are placed in danger and traffic problems occur when taxis and buses make use of road lanes and sidewalks to stop. The interaction and superposition of these problems are manifested as a fracture in the urban framework, disconnecting people, environments and different transport modes from one another and the rest of Tshwane. The aim of this design proposal is to address the fractured experience in the Menlyn area. The project should respond to the poor connectivity and transport problems currently experienced in Menlyn and reinforce Menlyn as an important node within Tshwane. It is argued that a Platform Building at Menlyn could integrate the various transport systems present in the Menlyn precinct with the envisioned underground Gautrain station. en
