Pretoria buildings tell a story of a 19th century republican outpost ignited by the politics of the British Empire, transformed by apartheid-era restructuring and evolving into a 21st century African metropolis. Johan Swart talks on his new book.

Johan Swart holds a masters degree in architecture and heritage studies.

Teaches architectural history at the University of Pretoria, leads a heritage focused design studio for postgraduate students. He is curator of the architecture archives at the university and is responsible for the safeguarding and interpretation of significant historical drawing collections.

HIDDEN PRETORIA is illustrated by Alain Proust, South Africa’s top architectural photographer.
