The incoming President of KZNIA invited participation of all KZNIA Members to submit one project which is of particular significance to the Member and/or their Practice. Projects on display will be in drawing or model format and is not limited to architecture. It can also include meaningful collector’s pieces or architectural photography.
The exhibition aims to increase public awareness of the architectural profession, especially in light of UIA 2014, hosted by the City of Durban, next year. South African Institute of Architects (SAIA) won the bid to host the ‘olympics of architecture’ in Durban in August 2014. The International Union of Architects has a membership of 1.3 million architects globally and holds the largest architectural congress tri-annually. The theme for the Durban event is ‘architecture otherwhere’.
