CIRCA, although relatively small in size, is lofty and was carefully constructed to create an urban environment that is confident about the importance of public space in the city, the importance of architecture to support public space, and the need for people to be able to socialise and gather in places in which they feel comfortable, safe and inspired. Its sculptural architecture is a celebration of art, architecture and living in Johannesburg, as well as to functionally house an environment where a love of art in all its forms can be explored by the public.
CIRCA on Jellicoe is an elliptical art building which was developed around the constraints of a narrow site that was previously used as a parking lot. It is located within walking distance of shopping malls, craft markets, hotels and restaurants. The complexity of the shape means that the building was virtually constructed by hand in order to achieve a high level of uniformity.
