This year, Cape Town plays host to over 460 solutions driven, design oriented projects. Each is geared towards transforming the lives of locals and visitors by turning the Mother City into a sustainable, inclusive and truly African city.

We love this video promoting World Design Capital 2014, and love what’s happening in our city.

Lorraine Loots embarked on a remarkable project in 2013 entitled 365 Postcards for Ants, in which she created a miniature watercolour painting every day for a year. Following its success, and in celebration of our city’s designation as World Design Capital 2014, she’s doing it all over again, and this time all the paintings are Cape Town themed.
