OH. ARCHITECTURE presents OH11 – Kantorowich Barnett Monograph. Roy Kantorowich’s work as an architect and planner played a key role in diversifying the nature of South African Modernism. He was part of a group of architects (including Hansen, MacIntosh, Fassler) who in the 1950s started criticizing the material means in which the 1930s Modern architecture was realised in South Africa. Jack Barnett described himself as ‘politically undesirable’ and was therefore cut off from the mainstream of government commissions. He went on to pursue work through architectural competitions and many winning entries were done in partnership with Roy Kantorowich. The innovative use of brick is a key element in both architect’s work.
