Field Trip - Voortrekker Monument

The architectural technology students took a fieldtrip to Pretoria in the scorching heat to visit some iconic landmarks in Architecture. The first stop was the Voortrekker monument designed by South African architect Gerard Moerdijk and built between 1937 and 1949. They then went on to visit church square where a number of heritage buildings are located such as the Old Council Chamber, the Old Capital Theatre, the General Post Office, the Tudor Chambers and lastly the Palace of Justice which is well known for its role in Nelson Mandela’s trial and sentencing. From there we drove past the Human Sciences Research Council building on Pretorius street to view the award winning design. The last stop on the tour was to the official seat of the South African government and also the offices of the president of South Africa, the Union Buildings, designed by Sir Herbert Baker which were completed in 1913.
