Current Work: Wolff Architects

« All Events

Current Work is a lecture series featuring leading figures in the worlds of architecture, urbanism, design, and art.

The spring 2022 Current Work series focuses on architectural practices designing museums, schools, and cultural centers that contend with the complex legacies of place.

Since its founding in 2012, Wolff Architects has aimed to cultivate, in its own words, “an enduring public culture around the city, space, and personhood.” Informed by the colonial history of its surroundings, the Cape Town-based firm excavates sites of historic inequity and erasure, using design, research, and advocacy tools to construct what it calls an “architecture of consequence.” From urban-scale infrastructure to handmade zines, its work embraces “a multiplicity of means of representation and expression, rather than accepting the constraint of speaking through buildings,” according to The Architectural Review.
