Rethinking University Drive
This project connects operators, users, students and small retailers in a mixed format of planning and dialogue.
The role of our University is to serve as a document conduit of knowledge, expertise and experience. It should be an incubator of explosive expression breaking through old norms — not manufacturing cogs for the office blocks.
The role of the public sector is to assist in warranting interventions that develop a sustainable University Drive for transport, retail, culture and activity to take place.
Rethinking the capital outlay, attracting and retaining more than student life. Perhaps stimulating a precinct of new styles of living along the Masonic symmetries of Lucas Mangope’s public offices.
Invited stakeholders include
- Public Transport
- Traffic Office
- Town Planning
