Dedicated to showcasing art from Africa and its diaspora, the self-guided audio tour feature in-depth information about the museum’s exhibitions and architecture. The tours feature commentaries from leading artists, curators, architects, designers and art practitioners.
Built in 1921, the Grain Silo remains an iconic feature of Cape Town’s skyline. The Architectural Tour gives visitors an insight into the industrial past of the Grain Silo building and its reformed architectural design by Thomas Heatherwick, of Heatherwick Studios. Inspired by grain corn, scaled up and used as a cutting tool, the impressive BMW Atrium introduces visitors to what lies ahead, as well as the complex design processes and architecture of the building. From the pillowing, glazed panel windows that reflect Cape Town’s landscape to the found spaces that highlight the past life of the building, this audio tour will give visitors an in-depth understanding of Zeitz MOCAA’s architecture. The museum’s monumental architectural facades will be brought to life with commentary from the building’s architects – Heatherwick Studios and Van der Merwe Miszewski Architects – and perspectives of the V&A Waterfront development team, amongst other key role players in the making of the building. The full Architecture Audio Tour is now available online.
