THE freshold

A new kinetic threshold that uses up-cycled plastic waste to empower and uplift a formal housing settlement in Manenberg. A security fence re-imagined. Colorful shingles are hung between columns to create a colourful and vibrant messaging board for the local community. These same shingles are free to rotate and ‘play’ in the wind, creating constant public intrigue and a dynamic architectural visual. By setting up a community based plastic workshop, the project can become ‘for the people - by the people’.
