A design of an intermodal transport interchange on the southern edge of Johannesburg inner city. The node was to comprise an administrative unit in an existing building, a commodious storehouse in a neighbouring revamped relic of the past, a new and open market place, a sheltered area for the queues of commuters and taxis, and four existing covered, compact shelter for muti traders, who constitute the majority of vendors occupying the premises. Traditional African spaces and symbol are interpreted for an urban context.
