Johannesburg, informally known as Jozi, Joburg, or ‘the city of gold’ is the largest city in South Africa and holds the seat of the country’s constitutional court. The City of Johannesburg was established in 1886 following the discovery of gold in the area. The initial minerals found turned out to be a part of the world’s largest known gold deposit – the Witwatersrand Basin.
During the urban development of Johannesburg, Apartheid town panners pushed the majority of the city’s black population into townships areas on the outskirts of the city centre. These settlements were collectively given the name Soweto (South-Western Townships). This once home to the Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela was only formally incorporated as a part of the City of Johannesburg after the Apartheid era.
Each featured building, in this artwork, includes the date it was completed and the architect who designed it. Prominent features range from the iconic Ponte City built in 1975 to the newer Nelson Mandela bridge and the repurposed Orlando Towers in Soweto.
