Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa

Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa

What used to be a massive concrete grain silo metamorphosed into an inventively designed art museum. The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront municipality approached London-based architectural firm, Heatherwick Studio, to bring the new attraction to life as part of a 123-hectare mixed-use development. 

Heatherwick leveraged the building’s unusual structure, using many of the 42 concrete silo tubes as individual exhibit spaces. The architects also created an open space within the facility’s center to serve as a social hub, and geometric glass installations reveal a majestic view of Table Mountain, perhaps the museum’s best art on display.
