Durban Central Library
eThekwini Municipal Libraries commissioned a temporary library on the Durban Centrum site, which links pedestrian commuters from central Durban to a major shopping mall and transport hub. The container structure offers WiFi and physical library services to passers buy in a welcoming and non-threatening environment, so that it raises awareness of the benefits of ‘books, reading and the internet’.
2036 : Biennale Internationale Design, Saint-Étienne, France
The Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Étienne is a multi-national global overview of design exhibition held in France’s only dedicated ‘City of Design’. MrW was invited to explore the theme around ‘France in the year 2036’ from an African perspective. The purely graphics only installation covered topics like AIDS, War on Terror, Politics and Race, Personal Freedom and so on – in a somewhat bleak (but accurate) interpretation of our collective future.
