[in] Process 2021: All Third Year Portfolio Document

We are pleased to launch the second edition of this All-Third Year Portfolio Document: [in] Process 2021. We hope that this online portfolio and exhibition of student work from the third year of architecture and planning will become an annual tradition at Wits SoAP, as a marker of the achievement of this graduating class. 

The theme of ‘In Process’, recognises that design and planning work is not only about final products but about a process of exploration, iteration and refinement of thinking through a project. The students from the architecture and planning studios have presented both a concise statement of their interests, and a project that they felt best expressed their approach to the discipline. Several research areas are emerging in the undergraduate programmes; and for the purposes of this portfolio document, the work has been grouped according to the following themes:

  • Society + Transformation
  • Embodiment + Phenomenology
  • Nature, Ecology + Sustainability
  • Science, Technology + Virtual
  • History, Memory + Tradition
  • Aesthetics, Pleasure + Excess
  • Materiality + The Poetics of Place
  • Black Music, Culture + Urban Typologies
