[ May 8, 2013; 8:00 am; ] This second in this series of posts looking at projects produced by the students of Unit 17 at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London, during a field trip to Cape Town. This project is entitled ‘A Reluctant Monument’ and is sited in a disused granite quarry at the foot of Table Mountain, it investigates the effect of suburban boundary walls as architectural artefacts of Post-Apartheid fear, and traces the history of bounded space in Cape Town.
