Zeitz MOCAA Cape Town – Thomas Heatherwick

“We could have so easily knocked it down and built a big shiny spaceship of a museum instead…But the danger would have been that people would just come to take a selfie and not go inside. In a place that doesn’t have a strong museum-going culture, our challenge was to make compelling innards, to lure people in to see the art.” – Thomas Heatherwick
