The Everyday and the Extraordinary: Three Decades of Architectural Design by Jo Noero

The Everyday and the Extraordinary celebrates the architectural career of South African-born Professor Jo Noero. Internationally renowned in the world of architecture, Noero’s work is firmly grounded in social conscience and he is principally known for projects such as the Red Location Museum of Struggle in Port Elizabeth, the Soweto Careers Centre and the Duduza Resource Centre. The exhibition is organised around three decades of practice from the 1980s to the first decade of the 21st century. Each decade is defined by the social and political context of that time: The 1980s was a period of uncertainty and upheaval, the 1990s a period of transition and the first decade of the 21st century a period of transformation. In its deepest sense, Noero’s work is a mirror of our times. The show encompasses original drawings, physical models, text and images, and is accompanied by a catalogue.
