Language Excursion: World Design Capital 2014

Author: · December 20. 2013 · Language Excursions

Design is the creation of a plan or convention for the construction of an object or a system. Our Language Excursions this week were about Cape Town World Design Capital 2014. Only 2 weeks left until Cape Town becomes the World Design Captial of 2014. Our students went to Langa, a suburb that is the dead centre of the city if you look on the map, a group of people have begun a project called The Langa Quarter. This is a project to put Langa on the map.

Woodstock is an incredibly diverse area both in terms of the people that live there and its economics. We went to visit the new Woodstock Exchange, explored street art and looked at the overall structure of Woodstock as a diverse set of communities, from the mountainside to the seaside.

Our last Language Excursion of the week was to The Urban Abundance Centre in Rocklands, Mitchells Plain, this is the showroom for what SEED is trying to achieve. We learned a lot about plants, seeds, food, herbs and the environment.
