GIfA Grammers


GIfA is teaming up with the Instagram Community on Heritage Day to photograph the Old Retail District in the Johannesburg Inner City. We will start at Beyers Naude Square and make our way towards Eloff Street, once the richest and most famous street in Southern Africa. We will pass some great historic buildings including Cuthberts, Markhams and Castle Mansions before taking a left at Jeppe and heading towards two magnificent 1930s skyscrapers... Manners Mansions and Ansteys. Then it is down Jeppe Street and over Kerk where there will be some phenomenal photo opportunities. After approximately two hours we will have you back at Beyers Naude Square with a camera full of iconic shots.

Please check times and meeting place with the organisers.

Architecture is the most visible and public of the arts. An important function of all the Regional Institutes and the South African Institute of Architects (SAIA) is to recognise and promote excellence in architecture and to create public awareness and debate on architectural issues. The awards programme is in support of these goals.
