Library Week Celebration

Our Libraries are indeed telling powerful stories of our academic journeys. Let us embrace and use them with care, taking with us, beautiful memories and leaving behind spaces for others to occupy.


Congratulations are in order for Dr Carin Combrinck's outstanding and dedicated works in EBIT for the Teaching & Learning Award.

The Teaching & Learning Award is specifically focused on innovation in T&L, and Dr Combrinck’s work in the Honours and Masters' programmes on introducing students to public-interest design processes in collaboration with Chalmers University of Technology has really set a benchmark for the University at a number of levels.

BOUKUNDE: 75th Anniversary


Boukunde: 75th anniversary of the Department of Architecture, University of Pretoria

The 1st of March 2018 marked the 75th anniversary of the establishment of the Department of Architecture at the University of Pretoria. This 75th anniversary publication frames not only the academic and physical development of the department but, more importantly, highlights the contribution its graduates have made to teaching and practice. 

This publication is a record of antecedents, foundations, pedagogies, memories and future directions. None of these aspects would have been possible without the all of the personalities that have been associated with Boukunde since 1943. It is to all of them that this publication is dedicated.
