THE ARCHITECTURAL PORTFOLOIO

 

FRIDAY 10 DECEMBER 2021

09:00 - 15:30

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of applying and understanding principles of architectural history (Professional Competency: Architectural History, Theory, and Precedent).

This workshop is designed to show architectural professionals how to make portfolios for both academic and professional needs to provide reviewers exactly what they are looking for. It is an essential tool when an architectural professional plans to apply for RPL, Special Consent, or Limited Special Dispensation.

 

In school, architecture curricula nurture the knowledge and skills to develop design work to varying levels of presentation. In the profession, those skills are further developed and applied in the creation of the built environment.  In both contexts, a portfolio is a core component for admission and advancement.


This workshop, based on Vincent Hui recent published book - The Architecture Portfolio Guidebook - provides key strategies to:

 

  • develop an understanding of the unique needs of professional and academic organizations;

  • identify applicants’ key differentiators;

  • highlight how applicants present themselves in their portfolios to
    address institutional needs;

  • create successful reinforcing documentation;

  • communicate using portfolios.

 

Rather than proposing generic solutions, the workshop will detail the successful practices for portfolio creation by addressing portfolio creation academically and professionally. Supporting insights and examples from leading academics and architects from around the world reinforce the themes presented. An ideal workshop to attend for students and professionals of architecture, looking to advance their studies and careers.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of applying and understanding the requirements of energy use in buildings as per the 2nd edition of SANS10400-XA (Professional Competency: Construction Technology, Building Services, and Related Technologies).

The publication of SANS10400-XA 2nd Edition was approved by SABS on 05 November 2021 and will be available soon.

This workshop will, by means of practical examples and exercises, explain the new requirements on how to comply with the NBR and will include fenestration calculations using the new method (DTS and not rational design in terms of SANS204 anymore). Please note that a decision was taken by TC059 SC01 of SABS to withdraw SANS204 once SANS10400-XA 2nd Ed is published.

In addition to the above, the legal requirements of completing existing work using the old (1st ed) of SANS10400-XA will be explained, for example:

  1. Do new projects have to comply with the 2nd edition?

  2. A project already started - can we continue to comply by using the 1st edition?

The workshop will be presented by Frans Dekker, the convenor of the SANS10400-XA workgroup at SABS and chair of the SABS Technical Sub-committee: Energy Efficiency in Buildings.

THE ARCHITECTURAL HISTORY OF AFRICA

SOUTH OF THE SAHARA

 

MONDAY 13 DECEMBER 2021

09:00 - 15:30

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of understanding the principles of putting together an architectural portfolio (Professional Competency: Office Practice, Legal Aspects and Ethics).

African architecture is as diverse as the cultures of Africa. Recent discoveries of stone structures in southern Africa are argued to be the earliest human-made buildings on the planet, dating back 75,000 years. The Soninke people of pre-historical Ghana had (now anonymous) architects who carved stone masonry settlements and worked with copper as early as 2500 BCE.

Perhaps the most well-known architectural wonders of Africa are those in ancient Egypt, including the monumental obelisks, the pyramids at Giza, and the Great Sphinx from the period between 2,000 BCE and 100 CE. However, other kingdoms of ancient northern Africa rivaled the architectural wonders of the ancient Egyptians, and the peoples of western and southern Africa exhibited styles uniquely theirs.

In Ghana, West Africa, and Ethiopia, tombs, and monuments dating back as early as 1000 BCE were erected from carved stone. Often, entire temples would be carved from a single block of rock, such as in Tigray. It was common for most buildings to be created from local materials, such as timber, mud-brick, or limestone. One of the trademarks of Aksumite architecture was constructed from layers of mud and wood in a unique design that came to be known as “monkey head” support beams

ARCHITECTURAL STYLES:

ART DECO

 

TUESDAY 14 DECEMBER 2021

09:00 - 15:30

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This virtual workshop will contribute to the continuing development of the architectural professional by providing further mobility and transportability within the field of applying and understanding principles of architectural history (Professional Competency: Architectural History, Theory, and Precedent).

Art Deco followed and co-existed with a number of other styles, many of whose characteristics it sometimes shared: the straight lines of the Modern Movement, Bauhaus, Rationalism, De Stijl and the International Style, and the decorative, highly sculptural elements of the Viennese Secession, Dutch Expressionism {seen at its best in the creations of the Amsterdam School), Scandinavian Romanticism and Neoclassicism, British Arts and Crafts, the Chicago School and Frank Lloyd Wright's successive Prairie School, and even its highly organic immediate precursor, Art Nouveau or Jugendstil.

 

Many creators of Art Deco buildings absorbed the styles of the ancient past as well, imbuing them with an undeniable sense of modernism. This was not the modernism we attribute today to the International Movement, but 'modernism' as the term was more simply applied in the nineteen-twenties and nineteen-thirties meaning something new and different, something exciting and unorthodox, something characterized by a sense of joie de vivre that manifested itself in terms of colour, height, decoration and sometimes all three.


Art Deco is in fact a relatively recent term, coming into general usage soon after a 1966 exhibition, 'Les Annees "25" Art DE'co/Bauhaus/Stijl/ Esprit Nouveau', presented at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs, Paris. 'Art Deco' derived directly from the 1925 Exposition des Arts Decoratifs et lndustriels Modernes in Paris, the exciting world fair that was in fact the high point of the French modeme style and the starting-off point for American adaptations and offshoots of it.


Art Deco architecture is not an architecture of personalities, of star architects. It is an architecture of the buildings themselves, of their inherent yet overt qualities and of their spirit, energy and immediate visual impact, not of their internal structures, services, floor plans, and front and side elevations. Few members of the general public in the West can name an Art Deco architect, but most are more than familiar, for instance, with the Empire State Building.
