The City produced the DESIGNING_SOUTHAFRICA (D_ZA) exhibition at the London Architecture Festival in July 2012. D_ZA was invited by the British Council to represent South Africa as part of their International Architecture & Design Showcase that took hold of London. A Nation Under Construction told the story of South Africa’s contemporary urbanism, architecture and social development through striking portraits, reportage, landscape and cityscape images by Leon Krige, Dave Southwood, Bruce Sutherland and Andrew Bell – taken from the Litshe Le Golide film he made with Guy Adam Ailion.
The participation was South Africa’s first ever representation at the festival and was supported by Brand South Africa and the British Council.
