The Guardian: the international press focuses on Cape Town WDC 2014

In an article titled ‘A tour of Cape Town, World Design Capital 2014’, Lisa Grainger of The Guardian advises: Forget fancy galleries – in Cape Town, 2014 World Design Capital, the most exciting work is in the townships and once-grungy inner-city areas.

“Like most tourists to the most southerly city in South Africa, I hadn’t intended to spend most of my week in townships. I had come to investigate what visitors might see in this year’s World Design Capital (WDC). Before I arrived, I had imagined that I would be strolling around, admiring work by the country’s leading designers, taking in a cutting-edge exhibition or two; and perhaps following design trails from style emporium to crafts shop. How wrong I was.”
