Light Space Life, architecture firm SAOTA’s first exhibition, opened on Thursday, 07 December 2017 at THE ARCHITECT pop up gallery at The Cape Institute for Architecture (CIfA). With work in 86 countries, the exhibition highlights SAOTA’s past, present and future work around the globe.
The gallery has been transformed to reflect SAOTA’s distinctive style and dedicated approach to design. The space is divided into regions – Southern Africa, West -, East- and Central Africa, Europe, Middle East, Asia, Australia and America – taking the viewer through the studio’s history and 30-year journey.
A focal point is a high impact zone featuring a selection of signature projects and timelapse footage. Tenebris Lab, a design collaborative and software development studio, will allow viewers to experience and explore projects in Virtual Reality through Lux Walker.
SAOTA staff have built scale models of key projects to demonstrate the use of light and space.
Held until 2 March 2018, entrance is free and open to the public on First Thursdays and daily between 12pm – 2pm. The exhibition is supported by Dulux, Nederburg and Lux Walker by Tenebris Lab.
