X = Place. The project was the design and construction of a large scale architectural installation at AfrikaBurn in the Tankwa Reserve landscape in the Karoo. The project offered the opportunity to investigate the pedagogical implications and processes of including a design/ build project into the academic curriculum; and as an architectural undertaking explored the potential of the architectural model in the design process, and the use of construction limitations as a generator for tectonic ingenuity.

Architecture as Landscape. The Tsitsikamma: Architecture and Landscape Exhibition was the presentation of a number of projects that explored architecture and its potential responses to landscape. The exploration was mediated though the design of an interpretation centre and boutique hotel in the Tsitsikamma Nature Reserve in the Eastern Cape, which offered a program that is intrinsically rooted in offering visitors an experience of the surrounding landscape.
