Mangaung Granary: an economic catalyst for broadening agricultural participation in the Mangaung Metro
This dissertation seeks to be a contemporary and architectural intervention reinterpreting the granary. Breaking away from the brutalist engineered giants of the 20th century distributed across the lands, this project aims towards a refined architectural engagement. In search of making an architectural ensemble of industrial delight, it strives to exalt the cathedral of the Free States rolling fields, the silo. By reacting to the economies of scale, this architectural intervention acts as an economic catalyst enabling broader participation in the agricultural industry. In respect to the Mangaung Metro Municipality the project will affect emerging small scale farmers.
