Snøhetta designs Memorial Arch for Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Mar 08, 2018

In partnership with South African office, Local Studio, and Design Indaba, Snøhetta has designed a memorial arch for human rights activist and Nobel Peace Prize recipient Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

 The Arch is situated at the intersection of Adderley Street and Wale Street at the northern end of Cape Town’s cultural precinct known as The Company’s Garden, between St. George’s Cathedral, where Tutu served as Archbishop, and the National Parliament.  The project was first announced at Design Indaba in 2017, and was completed for the celebration of Archbishop Tutu's 86th birthday.
