From old to new

In Cape Town, a historic grain silo has blossomed into a museum of contemporary African art. The architects at Heatherwick Studio have sawed open the concrete walls of the granaries, creating an atrium of almost cathedral-like character. New concrete reinforces the old silo walls - only after a subsequent treatment with KEIM Concretal did it meet the demands of the planners.
