Designing an African Identity

Founder of Daffonchio & Associates Architects, Enrico Daffonchio’s work ranges from product design to entire precinct development. The firm has an interest in sustainable design and colaborations with contemporary artists. More recently, open source approach and parametric design are giving a powerful new direction to the firm’s work.

Enrico’s talk about Designing an African Identity will cover site-specific features, climate and the inspiration behind various plans and choice of materials. The physical context is what informs his design concept in different ways.

In addition to the original Joburg office, Daffonchio & Associate Architects have established offices in Cape Town and Milan.
