Stadslab (Fontys) starts collaboration with Cape Town University of Technology (CPUT) in Intercultural Space design project.
Darling Intercultural Space is designed as a collaborative program for students and research staff from Fontys (MSc Architecture and MSc Urbanism) and Cape Town (CPUT) to engage in a meaningful exchange with local authorities and residents to address the urgency and potential of designing for intercultural exchange. The program is supported by Swartland municipality and linked to a regional urban upgrading program (RSEP). The objective is to design and execute interventions in public space, over a two to three year period, ultimately contributing to Darling's socio-economic, environmental and cultural agendas. Darling is a small rural community of 10,000 inhabitants in the Western Cape territory, approximately one hour's drive from Cape Town. More info
