RADIO INTERVIEW - RISSIK STREET POST OFFICE - TUESDAY, 22nd FEBRUARY
Dear Member,
Don’t miss Heritage Today on Tuesday, 22 February,  when Flo Bird has 3 guests from the Johannesburg Property Company who will explain just what is happening to the Rissik Street Post Office and exactly when the restoration work will start.  Brian Mahlangu (PR and Media Officer),  Kululwe Muthetwa (Project Manager: Capital Projects) and Fanuel Motsepe (Heritage Architect) are intimately involved
The Johannesburg Property Company is undertaking this work with special pride in this City’s heritage and a determination to prove that the past neglect was a factor of budgetary constraint and not because they are not aware of its great cultural importance in the heart of the City directly across the road from the Gauteng Legislature, which is also a fully declared Heritage Site.  
Flo Bird will be putting the questions which have been on the minds of all conservationists  “Are you going to restore the Rissik Street Post Office? “ and  “When will the work begin.”

RADIO TODAY TALK - MEDIUM WAVE 1485 OR DStv RADIO CHANNEL 169 - 10.45 AM

Heritage Today - 3 December 2013 - (Each Tuesday at 10H45)

Guest: AmaWasha - remembered

Heritage Today is brought to you on Radio Today each Tuesday from 10h45 to 11h00 by The Parktown & Westcliff Heritage Trust.

Five years ago the Rand Steam laundries buildings in Richmond were smashed to pieces and all debris removed from the site. Extensive negotiations have reached a most surprising conclusion - an agreement between Imperial and the heritage organisations on the zoning conditions which will allow the huge site to be used for motor car dealerships, workshops, spares and offices – some of which will be housed inside the buildings which are to be reconstructed along the edge of Napier Road. So once more there will be the long barn like industrial blocks with their clerestory windows and rows of ventilators along the roof ridges. Part of the site will be dedicated to the memory of those Zulu Washermen who more than one hundred years ago took bundles of clothing from the dusty and grubby mining town down to the clear stream water for a scrub on the rocks, spreading everything to dry on the small bushes.

Flo Bird, William Gaul and Pierre Roestorf will be talking about the impact on Joburg’s heritage and Richmond in particular. It will offer a new focus for the Corridor of Freedom and the BRT which lies just one block away from the site. Hooray – a good news story to start the festive season.

Heritage Today - 19 November 2013 - (Each Tuesday at 10H45)

Guest: Sarah Calburn

Heritage Today is brought to you on Radio Today each Tuesday from 10h45 to 11h00 by The Parktown & Westcliff Heritage Trust.

Sarah Calburn is an award winning architect in Johannesburg who delights in opening spaces using very modern and simple, elegant designs. She  has recently created a new Maths Centre at Roedean incorporating older parts of the school dating back to 1903. The wonderfully labyrinthine dormitories of the old School, study turrets, fireplaces and Baker woodwork are highlighted in a clear, light filled sequence of spaces that beautifully juxtapose the new with the old. Although very contemporary, the project passed stringent Heritage regulations with full approval. The new centre opens views and spaces without destroying the beauty and intimacy of the old.

Flo Bird and Sarah Calburn will be discussing the need to add and transform old buildings without destroying what is meaningful about them.
