Architecture in a Noisy Democracy: Recent Work by Jo Noero

Response by Hilary Sample

Jo Noero formed Noero Architects in Johannesburg in 1984. The practice has offices in Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Noero is outspoken on maintaining local expertise and using good design to empower individuals in their environment. He has been the recipient of local and international awards, including the Lubetkin Prize from the Royal Institute of British Architects in 2006, the Ralph Erskine Prize from the Nordic Association of Architects in 1993, and the Gold Medal for Architecture from the South African Institute of Architects in 2010. Noero’s work has been exhibited at MoMA, the Venice Biennale, the Sao Paolo Biennale, the Singapore Biennale and the National Gallery of Art in Cape Town.

Noero has designed and built over 200 projects and has combined a professional career with an academic one, lecturing both locally and internationally. Noero was the Director of the School of Architecture and Planning at the University of Cape Town from 2000 to 2005. He has been a tenured professor at that institution from 2000 to 2015. He has also held the Pietro Belluschi Visiting Professorship of Design at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon, and the Ruth and Norman Moore Professorship of Architecture and Director of Graduate Studies at Washington University, St Louis. He is an International Fellow of RIBA, a Fellow of the Academy of Science of South Africa and is an Alumnus of the Salzburg Seminar.
