On our last visit to Johannesburg we were told that Ponte City, a ‘70s luxury apartment tower, had become the unofficial starting point for the streams of rural migrants, refugees and immigrants coming to the city in search of jobs, beds and everything in between. As part of our #architectureofopportunity series, Right Angle Strategist Shenaz Engineer explores Ponte’s many lives, as it radiates into a clearer, more inclusive vision of itself, defining not just the skyline, but the kind of place that Jozi hopes to become.

Leaving @womxninmusic at @thetennisclubjhb last night felt like the closing scene of a coming of age film. "Well you look like yourself, but you're somebody else. Only it ain't on the surface.
Well you talk like yourself. No, I hear someone else though. Now you're making me nervous." #womeninmusic #samusicscene #music #livemusic #alternative #scenekids #waywayback #pontetower #vodacom #vsco #vscocam #vscosouthafrica

EDITION//30// PONTE TOWER. In an inner-city neighbourhood gradually shedding its crime-riddled skin, Ponte is a symbol of the renaissance sweeping South Africa’s commercial capital. #illustration #vector #neon #ponte #pontetower #johannesburg #southafrica #editions

Bugün Ponte Kulesine gittim. Ponte, 1975'te inşa edilmiş, Afrika'nın en yüksek mesken/rezidans olarak kullanılan gökdeleni, 173 metre. İlk inşa edildiğinde zenginlere, sonra gangsterlere, fahişelere, intiharlara; en sonunda ise sıradan insanlara, Hollywood filmlerine ev sahipliği yapmış. Neler neler görmüş geçirmiş yani. Bana göre binanın en etkileyici kısmı ortasındaki bu apartman boşluğuvari alandı. Kendini küçücük hissediyorsun ve sanki tüm dünya bir olmuş kapkara gözlerle yukarıdan seni izlerken sen aşağıdan umutla masmavi gökyüzüne bakıyorsun...

I was at Ponte Tower today. Ponte was built in 1975 and is the tallest residential skyscraper in Africa with 173 m height. It was a home for the rich people when it was first built, then became a home for gangsters, prostitutes and suicides; and finally turned into a home for ordinary people and Hollywood movies. What a story! For me, the most breathtaking part of the building is this hollow interior allowing light to come in the apartment. You feel yourself as a tiny speck in the world and while the whole world is watching you from above with black evil eyes, you are looking at the sky with great hope...
