The New Silo District in Cape Town
October 30 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
This session is part of the 2019 Fall Professional Development Series.
The Silo District in Cape Town, South Africa, is a new urban, mixed-use, sustainable precinct which extends the very successful V+A Waterfront. At the centre of the precinct is the historic Grain Silo, which gives the district its name. The precinct achieved a number of firsts in South Africa and has won many local and international awards.
The presentation gives an overview of the development of the District, from the initial master-plan in 2010 to current developments. It touches on the individual buildings that make up the precinct and focuses on the redevelopment of the historical Silo itself and the collaborations that made it happen. A site appropriate approach to sustainability, and some of the technical challenges which arise in re-purposing historical industrial buildings are discussed.
