A sculptural building that resembles the head of Nelson Mandela in Cape Town, South Africa. A monument will teach next generations about the man who gave his life for justice and show his heritage. The size of the building suits the visibility and accessibility on the mountain overlooking Cape Town and its coastline. The two different appearances of the façade illustrate the use of natural resources.
