Encompassing South Africa's years of apartheid and well into its aftermath, this study examines the history and culture of the city of Johannesburg through its architecture and planning. Analyzing various types of buildings—from shopping malls and banks to homes and universities—this work reveals how years of apartheid have shaped the context of housing, community life, settlement, and the servicing of cities.

About the Author:

Clive M. Chipkin is an architect, a lecturer at Wits University, and the author of Johannesburg Style: Architecture & Society 1880s–1960.

Review:

"A classic; witty, empirical and very often concerned with detail, but not bogged down by it."  —Sean O'Toole, editor, Art South Africa



"Exhilarating."  —Business Day



"The author is blessed with a sense of proportion and a sense of humor and the ability to say what he means."  —The Sunday Times



"The book is an 'engrossing exgagement' with crisp and beguiling photography and a text that is 'commendably' straightforward. It is accessible and precise without being pompous."  —Alan Lipman, professor emeritus, Wits School of Architecture



"Delicious."  —Peter Hudson, Wits University

"A tour-de-force."  —Roger Fisher, University of Pretoria

"Reading this book was one of the great pleasures of my year."  —Bobby Godsell, former chairman, Anglo Gold Ashanti



"This new volume truly is an opus magnum."  —Shirley Zar, architect and urbanist

Book Depository International

Book Description Ste Publishers, South Africa, 2009. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Johannesburg Transition - Architecture & Society from 1950 is a follow-on book to his previous work, Johannesburg Style - Architecture & Society 1880s - 1960, and so completes over 125 years of the history of Johannesburg's architecture. The book closely examines the built environment of southern Africa's economic hub from pre-1950 to the present, neatly combining facts and figures with highly-informed commentary and an abundance of carefully selected photographs and illustrations. Chipkin brings his intellect to bear on the usually impenetrable workings of architects, planners and engineers to unravel a complex tale in a style that is lively and engrossing. While there are other books about Johannesburg, this is the only one to comprehensively detail the forces and influences (politics, economics, international architectural trends and styles, the environment, etc.) that shaped this city and its buildings from an historical perspective. It is a vital reference / research tool for students, historians, architects, designers and town planners. Seller Inventory # AAN9781919855882
