Melvill & Randera are two architects who share a deep-rooted interest in the built environment and the vital role architecture plays in defining it. The +NESS project came about as a means of shedding new light on the buildings of cities, with the hope of helping people better appreciate the cities they live and the architecture that defines them.
The project and its artworks present an array of architectural projects that help define the skylines, culture, and history of South African cities. Accurately-drawn facades of different buildings are paired with unique colour schemes to express their particular character and context and ultimately uncover each building’s essence, charm, and "+NESS". Displayed together, the collective body of work reveals the "+NESS" of our cities.
