EXCURSIONS@HOME - Ilze WolffYou are kindly invited to attend the online lecture by Ilze Wolff on Thursday 11 Februari, 8PM.

The lecture is the fourth in the series EXCURSIONS@HOME, in which scholars, architects and artists take us on a journey abroad. Not unlike the 18th century writer Xavier De Maistre, but supported by the newest technologies of global communication, we will travel together, yet each from our own room, to buildings, squares and sites that they cherish and wish to share with us.

You can follow this lecture via "Zoom" with the link below:

Rex Trueform, Cape Town - 33° 55' S 18° 27' E

Rex Trueform is a garment manufacturing factory in Salt River, Cape Town, designed by pioneer modernist architects, Policansky, Andrews and Niegeman. As 20th century industrial buildings in Cape Town, they are representative of a particular kind of modernity, one that is entangled with constructions of race, class and gender and linked with key moments in the political life of South Africa.

Ilze Wolff is a partner of Wolff Architects, based in Capetown. She graduated with a B.Arch at the University of Cape Town. She received a Mphil in Heritage and Public Culture, African Studies Unit, UCT. Ilze co-founded Open House Architecture in 2007, a transdisciplinary research practice which she continues to direct parallel to Wolff.
