South Africa is host to Africa’s largest contemporary art museum opened in the port city of Cape Town. The Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) is located near a harbour overlooking Robben Island and built inside the city’s old grain silos closed in 2001.
The 42-silo building was the tallest tower in sub-Saharan Africa for nearly half a century since it was built in 1924.
It features a luxurious hotel at the top and houses over a hundred galleries, research centers and a rooftop garden.
The interior of the 100,000 square feet museum was designed by British architect Thomas Heatherwick who created a maze of windowless space to provide a platform for African and Diaspora artists to display their work.
