Today, in honor of Nelson Mandela I want to share a beautiful design concept that would’ve been one of the most grandiose monuments in the world if built.
I truly hope someone picks this up and I get to see this beautiful monument on the mountains of Cape town one day.
May your beautiful soul rest in peace Nelson Mandela 🕊 ”Ramon Knoester of WHIM Architecture initiated an Indiegogo campaign to raise funding for the Nelson Mandela Centre, a 30 metre (98.5 ft) wide by 60 metre (197 ft) high multistory sculptural building built in the shape of the great statesman’s head. The edifice was to have been constructed halfway up Devil’s Peak, just above Cape Town’s District Six with a panoramic view of Robben Island where Mandela was imprisoned.
Knoester’s plan was to celebrate both Mandela’s 95th birthday (on July 18th) and his lifetime of accomplishments. Though the two-month-long fundraising campaign fell well short of expectations, the problem may merely have been one of timing. Now that Nelson Mandela has passed on, it may be time to revisit the Nelson Mandela Centre in the context of a reverent tribute and an educational memorial that, like Nelson Mandela himself, casts a giant shadow.”
The complex ceilings at Bespoke Renovation 4. This first floor addition had us seamlessly blending the old with the new. The existing gable roof line created interesting new window sill lines. The first floor living area feels open through the use of glass and cozy through the use of form to create a refuge from the open planning living of the floor below.
