Mandela Development Corridor (MDC) Urban Design Framework for the MDC and
Tshwane Metropolitan Council.2005 (@US)
Urban Regeneration project focusing on the upliftment of a stretch of land wedged between the Inner City of Pretoria and its high density residential suburbs of Arcadia and Sunnyside. The urban design framework foresaw the proper reintegration of the MDC with its surroundings by providing spatial principles that focus on defined public spaces, a broader mixture of uses, pedestrian proximity, public transport, urban management, informal traders and taxis as well as the coding of the future architecture.
Included in this framework was the future implementation of the New DTI Trevenna Campus, which was to act as catalyst for the regeneration of this area. Apart from the urban design framework, we were the winning architects for the construction of the DTI Head Office.
