Thanks to technology, the Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture has been able to get a few of the speakers originally lined up for the Sciame Spring 2020 Lecture Series to record their lectures and or speak to ‘live.’ We’re kicking off on Monday, April 6 at 5:30PM with Counterspace. Owing to the time difference, Sumayya Vally and Sarah de Villiers, principals at Counterspace, will be staying up until 2:30am to answer your questions!

Counterspace are the winners of the 2020 Serpentine Pavilion competition, the youngest architects ever to win this prestigious award. Based in Johannesburg, they are a collective studio of young architecture graduates, established in 2014 by Sumayya Vally, Sarah de Villiers, and Amina Kaskar. All three combine teaching with practice, teaching at the Graduate School of Architecture (Vally & de Villiers) and Wits University (Kaskar). Their work is predominantly concerned with ideas of the future and of ”otherness.” They are dedicated to research-based projects, which take the form of exhibition design, competitions, urban insurgency and public events. Hosted by Dean Lokko.
