n De Arte - Light on a hill : building the Constitutional Court of South Africa, Bronwyn Law-Viljoen (Ed.) : book review

Volume 2007, Issue 75
  • ISSN : 0004-3389



is a visually elegant book that claims to 'reflect the spirit of the Court and be a beautiful object in its own right' (p. 8). Certainly this book is striking, with its rich photographs by Angela Buckland, its fresh, breathable design by Adele Prins, and its broad format with lavish centerfolds. Reading the text is in many ways an enlightening process of understanding the conceptual underpinnings of the buildings that make up the Constitutional Court complex, but this process of reading takes a few twists and turns along the way.
