Can we tell you how excited we are at UJ to be offering, for the first time on the African continent, the world-famous
Unit System way of teaching? Yes, we can! Following in the footsteps of global leaders in architectural education like the
Architectural Association, the Bartlett, Sci-Arc and a host of other, world-class schools of architecture, we’re kicking
o! 2015 with a bang. Three brand-new units, run by a highly-motivated, talented and dedicated team of postgraduate
tutors, will set the scene for Africa’s most innovative, relevant and creative teaching laboratory. A brand-new film club,
FADA Film, an initiative between the FADA Gallery and the Departments of Multimedia and Architecture will bring you
the most cutting-edge, contemporary and classic films around our core disciplines of art, architecture and design.
What’s Next?, our first quarter lecture series, will feature innovative young practitioners from across Gauteng who are
shaping the profession in ways no one could have predicted. ArchiSeries, our on-going collaboration with the Bartlett
School of Architecture in London which allows us to ‘share’ some of the world-class lectures taking place in London
almost in real-time, will kick o! in the second quarter. It’s all happening here at UJ and we’re delighted to welcome you
on board! We can’t wait! Can you?
