The architecture of Cape Town, South Africa

Updated: Feb 7

Cape Town is a charming city. Unfortunately it is still a very Caucasian city, almost 3 decades after the end of Apartheid; but despite this I couldn't help but fall in love with it, as so many before me!

The views are spectacular: the ocean on one side and a range of low mountains on the other side; one of them is the fabled Table Mountain that appears completely flat on top. Add to that luxuriant greenery and flowers, Mediterranean-style climate, and you'll be blown away just by the natural visuals.

As for architecture, there is the well-known "Cape Dutch" style, and a plethora of other styles. There are no McMansions here. In the United States, it's become an anomaly to see an architect-designed home (a scandal, in my opinion!), but in Cape Town every home is different and many are interesting.

Downtown Cape Town is denser and more colonial style. The below photo could almost be in northwest Florida, New Orleans, or somewhere in the Caribbean.

And then there is the cultural architecture, such as the renovated former grain silo which was transformed into a contemporary African art museum, the Zeitz MOCAA.
