Abstract: Once a grain silo complex consisting of a working house and storage annex for the processing of grain and other products, the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa and the Silo Hotel are the products of a unique vision by the architect, design innovation by the engineers, and a leap of faith by the client. Completed in 2017 at a cost of £30 million, the new complex pays homage to Cape Town, South Africa’s history and culture.
