Norval Foundation Architecture Tour – Cape Town’s Newest Museum
The opening of the Norval Foundation was the most exciting development in Cape Town’s art scene last year. Situated on the slopes of the Constantiaberg Mountain, the museum’s design makes the most of its stunning setting. It incorporates spaces especially for large sculptures (the core of the Norval collection) and galleries for a variety of exhibitions. It also includes research, art storage facilities, apartment, shop and restaurant.
We’ll get insights into how the project began and was completed from Renske Haller, the Managing Director of dhk architects. Of particular interest will be seeing how the sculpture garden has developed one year on.
