UIA2014 Media Launch
The official Media Launch for UIA2014 was held on 17 September at a stylish new Jazz Club venue at Point in Durban, called The Chairman.
Members of the Media, the architectural and built environment professions, City, Provincial and National Government role players and academics, gathered to get the latest news on the progress of the organization of the event to be held in Durban in August 2014.
Speakers covered the background to the event, developments on the programme and the implications for the architectural profession, South Africa and Durban, to be hosting an event of this magnitude.
The venue, owned by Durban architect Ndabo Langa, was 'Otherwhere' in every sense of the word. The previously, almost derelict building has been creatively coaxed back to life by Ndabo and provided the perfect canvas for creative director, Janina Masojada to work her magic on the look and feel of things…from branding of the 'Otherwhere' taxis which transported guests, to the graffiti on the walls, which was the backdrop for our photographs.
