Coffers, what Waffle?

These coffer pots are mesmerizing and appear to stretch for miles. Been trying to take arty photographs from building site I’ve worked on over the years. Not to sure how arty it is. This is taken from my current project which I have been working on for the last year. It’s the ground floor construction of a Shopping Center complex. Here in SA they call this type of construction coffer slabs, but sometimes I lapse back into my UK brain and call them waffles, which I did the other day. The design team looked at me with very puzzled faces! This is also my first post from an iPhone – hope it works. Well it didn’t, sending the old way, from our computer at home. Can you believe i consider this old and slow.

A year ago yesterday I moved to dhk

Phew, has a year passed so quick. Now working in a dynamic and buzzing office called dhk.  I have been exclusively working on a shopping center project in Johannesburg called Dainfern Square due for completion in April 2015. Its hectic but great to be in charge.

Just love this image and remanded me of the great image of Manhattan from the air in Mr Koolhaas book, but this “Cape Town” image is in colour and the buildings are all the same height.

The Unique Western Cape

Western Cape

Being Scottish who would have thought the Cape had such diverse communities. When I was on site in the Contractors Office this picture just summed up the Cape for me.

The Doc

Its been a while since i wrote, but this morning i had one hell of an inspiration injection. I heard Dr Mamphela Ramphele talk on the radio and WOW, WOW, WOW. Not that i’ve heard a barrow full of speech makers of late but what an eloquent, straight to the point and “talker of the obvious”.

Viva La Doc, Viva.
