YOUNG MODERN MONUMENTS OF PRETORIA

PAPER FOR M. DE KLERK

Pretoria’s inner city is home to a number of young Modern monuments. This document explores 12 of them. The 12 buildings are described bybackground, value, features, influences, threatsand strategies. Then, using Orbasli’s method(2008:37-46), the buildings’ significance isevaluated by attributing qualities to them to better understand their value. Orbasli’s method deals with conservation in the built environment anduses a valuation system to attribute significance tothe buildings according to a variety of categories. Orbasli’s visual method offers a quick, yet thorough analysis of the buildings and offers clues towards a means of intervention.

This document presents a value-based approach towards designing with history and context through recognition and analysis.
