About Us

Unit 15x in the Graduate School of Architecture at the University of Johannesburg explores urban landscape issues in order to broaden knowledge in architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design. Unit 15x encourages students to develop their own sense of value through socially challenging projects. Unit 15X uses a collaborative design research process as its primary research method to critically reflect on the design, function and making of buildings and public open spaces in Africa.  Unit15Xs teaching philosophy endeavours to produce students with a high-level awareness of the diversity of cultures of the African continent that can be used to creatively transform architectural education in response to contextual and cultural opportunities.
