It’s less than a year old, but we already can’t imagine Cape Town without MOCAA – or The Silo Hotel. Designed by Royal Portfolio, their masterwork won them the 2017 DESIGN Africa award.

Today the 100,000-square-foot Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa opens its doors to the public. As the biggest public art space to launch on the continent for more than a century, it looks set to change the contemporary art market as we know it.
