Product Description

This is a story about an iconic building in the Johannesburg inner city that is emblematic of the many, radical transformations of the city over the last two decades. Anstey’s, once the tallest residential building in Africa, remains the pinnacle of art deco architecture in Johannesburg. It has seen the various transformations of the inner city: from a fashionable but segregated era of glamorous shop fronts and teahouses, through tense periods of shabbiness and decay, to heady times of mixed cultural influences. Now, while Anstey’s is still subject to the pressures of flux in the city, the uniquely mixed community that resides in the building offers a bright possible future.
