Phillip Newmarch born in Johannesburg, grew up in Pietermaritzburg, studied in Durban
presently does freelance architectural work in Cape Town.
The purpose of this project is to promote public discussion of issues in architecture, particulary in South Africa, and access to relevant information that is available on the internet. While there are many sites with an international focus, there seem to be few that offer comment on South African issues, and the few local publications that offer critical comment are not readily available to the public. Hopefully this will go a little way to filling this gap.
Our history of disllocation and dissociation leaves us with difficult questions, which include : sustainable urban developement, environmental and conservation issues, appropriate technology and, perhaps more particularly, a range of other cultural, social, political and legal issues.
The project will depend on active reader participation for its success. All comments and submissions are therefore welcome, the more contentious the better.
While the editor can accept no responsibilty for the views or statements of others, content which, in his opinion,is obnoxious or amounts to personal slanging, will be deleted when found.
Any person mentioned in a comment will automatically have a right of reply.
