In this week’s voices of the city, we hear from local young architect Andrew Turpin.
In June 2016 GAPP Architects completed a Youth & Community Centre on the Corner of Julius Tsolo Street & Mzala Street, Cape Town, Khayelitsha.
Our weekend question series invites the public to think about an issue, and weigh in on the debate with their own comments. This week’s opening question surrounds the idea of youth involvement in the city. Do youth currently feel involved in their city, and perhaps more to the point, do they even care?
Young people are the future of cities, but how are they being empowered, inspired and connected to transform and shape our cities.
How can we continue to discuss the world’s energy and climate future without meaningfully engaging the generation of people who will be affected most by it?
