This handsome pocket guide to the major buildings of Durban and
Pietermaritzburg is the first of its kind available. Covering about
250 buildings of all styles and kinds - from the grand Edwardian
city halls and stylish Art Deco apartment buildings to the gleaming
office blocks of the 1990s and the community centres in the
townships - the book offers an introduction to the architecture of
the two major cities of KwaZulu-Natal. There are colour photos
throughout as well as some original plans and drawings. Short

architectural riches that are on offer in Durban and
Pietermaritzburg. - This book is the first of its kind and fills an
