Clay pavers in urban upgrading

International trends confirm a growing preference among urban design professionals for clay paving – providing functionality with character and charm in urban environments. Keeping pace with this trend locally, more and more urban upgrades are opting to use Corobrik clay pavers to bring life and vibrancy to our urban landscapes.

Concrete blocks for urban erosion control

Terraforce blocks have been used in another urban upgrading project which was initiated by the Ministry of Urban Development in Swaziland. In some of the settlements around Mbabane, steeply sloping and easily eroded topography in this high rainfall area posed a particular challenge to the local town planners. In order to prevent further damage to the environment, remedial measures were implemented, using manual labour as much as possible.

Cape Town for 2012 Urban Age Award

Another win for Cape Town – alongside its recent successful World Design Capital 2014 bid – is its selection as the city to receive the fifth Deutsche Bank Urban Age.  The Urban Age Award recognises and celebrates creative solutions to problems and opportunities that face more than half the world’s population now living in cities. The award focuses on projects that benefit communities and local residents by improving their urban environments. It seeks to encourage citizens, policy-makers, private business and non-governmental organisations to take a proactive role in adopting shared responsibilities for the cities of the 21st century – mankind’s first truly ‘urban’ age.

Finalists for the Deutsche Bank Urban Age Award 2012

Cape Town, home to almost 4 million people, is a highly differentiated city, filled with almost endless promise but also undermined by various constraints and pressures. The Deutsche Bank Urban Age Award, which is located in Cape Town this year, has attracted 254 entries, the highest number since the award was initiated five years ago in Mumbai, India, and through its subsequent travels to Sao Paolo in Brazil, Istanbul in Turkey, and Mexico City.  The Deutsche Bank Urban Age Award recognises and celebrates creative solutions to the problems – and opportunities – that city dwellers face. It offers a prize of R750 000 for the winning project.
