Zaida created new spaces to rediscover Cape Malay traditions
“Cape Malay architecture typifies the popular building type of the period and is quite unique to Cape Town. Remnants of these buildings have been preserved on CAPE QUARTER’s Waterkant Street facade and date back to the early 19th century.”
In the 1920s communities of Gujerati Indian descent used to live, work, and play in the now trendy De Waterkant neighbourhood. The intricate, decorative plaster cornice on building facades came from the hands of highly specialized Malay artisans.
A merry coincidence? You will get a chance to ask Zaida in person at next week’s dinner! See you soon~
