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


An unusual museum opened at the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town, South Africa, in September 2017: the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa.

From an idea by British designer Thomas Heatherwick, densely packed, 187-foot-tall concrete grain silos, originally constructed in 1921, were carved out to make a number of galleries and a large central atrium. The ovoid atrium — pictured in our June mystery photo — features angled cross-sections of the silos. The 9-story museum also has educational areas, a sculpture garden, a restaurant and a shop. On top of the museum is a 5-story hotel.
