CIfA Newsflash 38/2022 | Note from the School of Explorative Architecture [SEA]

The School of Explorative Architecture (RF) NPC is an independent and non-profit school of architecture in Cape Town. We started teaching 18 students this year on our three-year Bachelor of Architectural Studies degree accredited with the Council on Higher Education. We are provisionally registered until 31 December 2024 with the Department of Higher Education and Training as a Private Higher Education Institution and are endorsed by SACAP and have successfully completed a pre-validation visit with them. We offer practices a chance to reimagine architectural education with us by supporting us – this year or next – either through B-BBEE bursaries or through Section 18A tax deduction certificates for donations received. Please contact for further information or visit us at 25 Commercial Street in Cape Town. The flyer can be downloaded here. See you at the edge of the horizon!
