Join the Academics in a walkabout and discussion.

Theme: Curating Architecture

Tebogo Ramatlo, lecturer

Tebogo Ramatlo is an architect, maker, performing arts choreographer, and lecturer at Tshwane University of Technology. He established himself as an architect and teacher who integrates thinking and making in his practice since his master's dissertation, using large-scale model building and stop frame animation to narrate an urban future in which migrant women with children help build the city in which they seek shelter. In 2018, he collaborated in the Time, Space Existence Exhibition at the Venice Biennale with Nadia Tromp of Ntsika Architects where they built an installation raising awareness about refugees from Africa and Europe as part of a global architectural discourse. He frequently collaborates with 26’10 South Architects on projects that focus on the transformation of South Africa’s built landscape. Since then he has traveled extensively to Berlin, Turkey, Peru, São Paulo, and Los Angeles where he has given lectures and collaborative workshops on migration, informality, sustainability, and homelessness in cities. He is currently a Doctoral Candidate in architecture at TUT and his thesis focuses on the defragmentation of colonial cities in Africa from the center, the in-between, and the periphery.
