This imposing building with its brilliant white walls and extensive glazing is one of the newest and most modern structures on campus. Designed by the architect firm Kruger-Roos, the design was intended to reflect the transparency of the legal world. The building was inaugurated by President Thabo Mbeki in 2005 and was voted the third best building in Gauteng in a survey by Visi magazine and the South African Institute of Architects (SAIA) in 2006. It houses most of the Faculty of Law’s facilities on campus including staff offices, an auditorium, lecture halls and the Oliver R Tambo Law Library. Exquisite art works, mostly from the Sanlam Art Collection, by artists such as Diane Victor, Ike Nkoana, Andrew Verster, Anton Uys, Trevor Coleman, Judy Woodborne and Hermine Spies are on exhibit in the building.
