Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, Cape Town, South Africa

Zeitz MOCAA is a public not-for-profit contemporary art museum which collects, preserves, researches, and exhibits twenty-first century art from Africa and its Diaspora; hosts international exhibitions, designed by Heatherwick Studio. They reimagined the Grain Silo Complex at the V&A Waterfront with an architectural intervention inspired by its own historic character. Imagine forty-two 33 metre high concrete tubes, each with a diameter of 5.5 metres, with no open space to experience the volume from within. The building not only pays tribute to its original industrial design and soul but is a major, not-for-profit cultural institution housing the most significant collection of contemporary art from Africa and its Diaspora.
