ABSTRACT
This dissertation investigates public space within a South African context as part of inner city regeneration.
The architectural exploration aims to respond to a specific site and
neighbourhood needs as identified. Protecting the openness of the site,
integrating the site with its surroundings to enhance the potential of
social engagement.
The proposal provides a framework for spatial possibility in which
architecture is used as a framework through which users influence a
building’s design.
