December Newsletter

The end is nigh – of the year, that is. It’s been a big one, and I think we are all ready for the holidays.

We’ve worked on some fantastic projects –  the Innovation Hub in Botswana, the Memorial Acre in Sharpeville, hospitals in Mdantsane, Soweto, Parktown, Natalspruit and Phalaborwa, a traffic study in Rosebank and environmental upgrades arount the BRT here in Joburg were just some of them. We brought home an ILASA Award of Excellence from Durban. I went on a roadshow to several regional offices of the Department of Public Works around the country to tell them what landscape architecture is all about. Our founding partner Erika moved to a forest near Knysna. Molly left us, Flo and Elize joined us and Annamari went on maternity leave. The Gautrain started operating between Joburg and Pretoria, and changed our lives.

In the last month, we’ve posted an article on a beach promenade in Denmark, some new proposal sketch plan images and more pictures of Freedom Park. James did a walking tour with Johannesburg Ten Ahead author Gerald Garner for the Gauteng Society for Landscape Architecture year-end function, and posted a link to the Ten Ahead website.

With one week to go before we close our offices for the year, we are about to have our last Friday office lunch of 2011. Thank-you to all our clients and friends for your support during the year, and we wish you all a wonderful break and an even better 2012.

’til next year.
