Gurney (K.) AUGUST HOUSE IS DEAD, LONG LIVE AUGUST HOUSE!, the story of a Johannesburg atelier
171pp., b/w & colour illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2017. R410
Kim Gurney interviews tenants of August House, one of Johannesburg's foremost artists' studios, as the building goes up for sale and the artists face the prospect of having to move.

"With the eye of an urbanist, artist and resident, Kim Gurney [constructs] a compelling assemblage of individual, visual and urban narratives that brilliantly illuminates the complex life of a building, August House, located in inner city Johannesburg. Her cast of characters - artists, workers, neighbours, August House and the city - lends poignant contour to the ebbs and flows of daily life, the pressures of gentrification, the ruthlessness of poverty, the radicality of the imagination and the ghosts of history." Mabel O. Wilson, Columbia University

"Kim Gurney's biography of August House weaves together a diversity of...narratives that capture an intimate, layered view of a city in flux and the precarity of artists' spaces in Johannesburg. "August House is Dead, Long Live August House!" sensitively explores the tensions between competing impulses in the city, and who ultimately gets to shape what Joburg is and who it is for." Mpho Matsipa, University of the Witwatersrand

Kim Gurney is a writer, artist and research associate at the University of Cape Town's African Centre for Cities (ACC) and the University of Johannesburg's Visual Identities in Art & Design Research Centre (VIAD).

"Not Knowing", by design principal Don Albert
"Getting Inside You: context, strategy, taxonomy", and "Getting Out of Ourselves" by Nic Coetzer, senior lecturer at the University of Cape Town's architecture department.

"'Sound Space Design' comes at a critical time in the emerging global condition. Challenging modernism's restrictive spatial practices, Don Albert & Partners suggest a more reflectively produced location for architectural production. Situated in a process-driven discourse, the publication demonstrates a challenging means of constructing strategically considered realities. In exposing its experimental approach, the coherent body of work and writing that 'Sound Space Design' presents, affords a critical resource that is relevant to practitioners who are engaged in the contemporary project of architecture." Iain Louw, architect and professor at the University of Cape Town

"While South African architects seem adept at producing a fantasy architecture that relies on overly determined notions of identity and context, an architecture that is more questioning and open ended is what we need more of...This book highlights just how logical Don Albert and Partners has been in pursuing the irrational - as a counterpoint to the rote indulgences of a predicatable national style..."
