Civic Works and Community Buildings

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeChapterScientificpeer-review


Several Dutch émigré architects contributed considerably to the civil infrastructure of South Africa over the C20, but most of their work remains obscure as they were produced in the name of the municipal departments they served, such as Pretoria, Bloemfontein and Cape Town. Some other Dutch-born architects working in private practice were commissioned by specific organisations for designing schools, hospitals and other community facilities. This chapter contribution presented new information and insights into the contribution of these architects in the infrastructural development of South Africa.
