About the event
The Colosseum was one of Johannesburg's great iconic and much-loved Art Deco theatres but was demolished in 1985 despite campaigns by architect Herbert Prins and concerned citizens. The Colosseum has become a symbol of the tremendous loss of past heritage that the city has suffered. Many of our significant iconic landmarks are now being preserved, restored, and retrofitted.
A record number of sixteen (16) submissions was received, and the panel of judges was impressed by the projects' exceptionally high standard and diversity.
All the submissions were reviewed and evaluated for the next stage of on-site inspection and the allocation of Awards.
After much debate and deliberation, a shortlist of ten buildings and two research projects were selected as unanimously agreed upon by the panel.
We will be celebrating the award winners.
