I love the nightlife!

While there are more than 50 events taking place during Open Design 2017, you won’t want to miss what’s happening in the evenings and at night.

5K Product Launch

The 5K project requires BTech Industrial Design Students at CPUT to develop, market and sell a product that will make at least R5000,- profit before the end of their final year. This year the students have formed 4 companies, and each company will launch a product at the event.

Attention aspiring architecture students, young architects and people with an interest in the built environment: on the evening of 22 August, 12 of Cape Town’s leading architecture studios will be opening their doors to the public.
