About "Roben Island - Gateway"

This is a concept Design I did in 2003 for a competition but never entered it due to my travels around the world. It was meant to be a gateway building on Roben Island, Cape Town where Nelson Mandela spent several years in prison. You wouldve arrived by boat from Cape Town Harbour and the built envelope contained a shopping mall, cinemas, lecture rooms and many restaurants with views over the atlantic ocean. Most importnalty it wouldve been viewed as an object in the landscape with outside urban spaces in the form of a park, scultures and simply a space to enjoy and relax in.

About Heini

Heini Van Niekerk

Heini van Niekerk an architect by day and artist by night! Paintings are done "a la prima" (Italian for "to the first" painting done by attacking a blank canvas with a paint brush directly)and there is no definite style to him as it al depends on his mood when starring at a blank canvas...he is not an intellectual painter who plan paintings. Heini paints straight from the mind...not to impress but to enjoy his passion!

He Studied architecture and have designed high rise buildings in South Africa the United Kingdom, West India and Dubai. His tallest building designed to date is 60 storeys in height. Architecture is his sculpture of choice and there is no greater feeling than exploring your own works.

He was also a lecturer in Architecture at the Peninsula Technikon in Cape Town South Africa for 3 years. Today he lives in the United Kingdom and are proud to be associated with his open and free minded attitude towards the world.

He's an original creator by heart and loves to indulge himself in his art, paintings and designs. From furniture design, small art pieces, architecture and lately for the last 3

Art is everywhere you just have to set yourself free and know that God is in the detail...of everything.
