Listen to the entire show
Welcome to the Radio Workshop podcast!
Everywhere you look there are buildings going up, roads being expanded, and things being fixed. South Africa is building, and the 2010 World Cup has put a bit of a pressure on us to get things done and to get them done on time!
On today’s show we meet someone who is involved in a massive 2010 Fifa World Cup construction project—Cape Town-based architect Mokena Makeka. Mokena tells us what it’s like to be an architect, and takes us on a tour of the newly revamped Cape Town train station. Stay tuned!

My career: being an architect
Mokena Makeka originally set out to be an astronaut, but somewhere along the way his career path changed course. Working as an architect, Mokena is determined to turn South African cities into beautiful spaces that bring us together and bring out the best in us.

The Cape Town train station
Mokena Makeka is part of the team that is re-imagining Cape Town’s central train station as we know it. Rather than just a place to jump on and off of a train, it will be a destination in its own right—a place where things happen, a place where you’ll want to be. And it’s a big project that is looking forward to the year 2030! Let’s find out more.
