Town Planning Feedback


So, what do you do when you have a gap year and a beautiful new blank canvas for 2021? Besides taking mental trips around Tankwa Town? You start the Town Planning for Tankwa Town Quaggafontein!

Our team have many ideas and some plans – but we also want to hear yours. Have a think about how you inhabited that space called Tankwa Town (or that space inhabited you)…what worked what didn’t work…did you find yourself wondering the Binnekring not knowing where you were? Do you know that the roads are named for the theme in alphabetical order? There are loads of elements that we take into consideration when planning Tankwa Town.
Give us any feedback here on any aspects….you don’t have to come with the full solution we are curious about any tiny little thing that you have felt/experienced/observed. These are some (not all) of the things we consider:

• Placemaking/Sense of place: neighbourhoods, boulevards, Ramblas, plazas, spaces for play, habitats for all ages,
  alleyways, Theme Camps. optimising viewpoints for major artworks.
• Heritage. Memorial/Commemoration. The views!
• Siting and planning OCC, DPW, medics and Sanctuary. Gate. Airport. Fire Services. Rangers.
• Sanitation, more regular spacing of toilets.
• Orientation, navigability and landmark elements.
• Quiet and Loud zones.
• No-go areas.
• Road and camping site layouts
• Wind direction, quantity and location, accessibility and serviceability.
• What are the opportunities in having a larger area?

  • “…when you build a thing you cannot merely build that thing in isolation, but must also repair the world around it, and within it, so that the larger world at that one place becomes more coherent, and more whole; and the thing which you make takes its place in the web of nature, as you make it.” Christopher Alexander et al– A Pattern Language
