In the CBD of Tshwane, a cross societal and cultural architecture, that is of and from place, will be used to create an inner-city sanctum of a lingual repository that connects all walks of life in a societal apotheosis.
The site under investigation is seen as a politically and economically charged precinct within the CBD of Pretoria/Tshwane. Although it does not allow for human activity to proliferate to its fullest capacity, the inherent intention of the surrounding buildings is clear but their language doesn t talk to one another. An architecture that juxtaposes but also synthesises the existing is required. A contained within this program, dealing with language connects all walks of people, initiating inclusivity and a self restorative interaction between society in a bottom-up approach to node creation and synthesis of existing nodes in the CBD.
