The graduate project selection is a showcase of the top 4 achievers of universities in Gauteng, resulting in a distilled exhibition highlighting the culmination of their academic careers. The architectural design process is complicated by nature, living in both the world of the arts and the world of technical performance. The nature of architecture today is orientated towards the design product more than the design process. This is therefore the reasoning behind why this year’s exhibition focuses on the tactile nature of the design process; exploration, models and obsessions that embody architectural thinking. Technological advancement has provided powerful tools for representation in architecture today, however we are reminded that the essential yet traditional tools such as sketching, collage and model building are instrumental to a rich design process. Each student has developed a design process unique to their teaching and experiences that are rooted in their designs respectively. ‘Back to basics’ is an exhibition that highlights the raw design process alongside the refined architectural manifestation
