DEPT. OF SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY, Pretoria

The new 13 500m2 headquarters for the Department of Science & Technology has a prime position overlooking the N1 institutional highway and was designed to be a landmark for showcasing science and technology in South Africa.
A main 'corporate street' acts as a central spine which connects all the various components of the building through a quadruple volume space which is also the major interactive area in the building. The design makes physical the technological aspects of the building and was borne out of the merging of creating efficient and flexible work space. It stimulates social interaction and promotes education through interaction and exhibitionism.
