THIS IS OUR NEW HOME:

THE HASSO PLATTNER d-school AFRIKA* BUILDING

This magnificent building is home to the
Hasso Plattner d-school Afrika* at the University of Cape Town (UCT).

Perfectly situated at UCT's middle campus, this four-story building is more than just an architectural marvel with a 6 Green Star rating from the Green Building Council of South Africa, it's the birthplace of bright ideas for a better future - for you, for Afrika*, for life.

Our new home is dedicated to the teaching and learning of design thinking and officially opened in October 2022. 

Take a look at our new home.

Embedded in every Afrikan home language is the use of the letter ‘k’ in the name Afrika.
We choose to recognise our continent with its original spelling, allowing it to remain true to its identity, history, and people.
