Description

Cape Town is one of the most populous cities in South Africa andattractsmore touriststhan any other. It is a vivid and aspirational town with a lot of new hotels and restaurants. Cape Town's architecture is a fascinating mosaic of Asian, European and African traditions mixed with more and more modern elements. The city's image remains uniquely defined by the majesty of Table Mountain and the surrounding two oceans.
This book provides an insight intorecent and ongoingarchitectural projects in Cape Town. 35 projects from local and international firms (Arthur Quinton Darryl Croome, gmp, Thinkspace, dhk) are showcased with photographs, text (English, German, Spanish, French, Italian), CGIs and (where available) plans. From expensive houses enjoying the view to stadia, restaurants and convention centres, this is an interesting glimpse at a burgeoning city.
