I've been hearing rumours that this theatre, originally built in 1921 as a cinema, is going to be restored and revived as some kind of cultural centre, but for now it remains abandoned.

Ponte City dominates the #Johannesburg #skyline. The myri-ad #myths that encircle this 54-story #apartment #building spurred #Subotzky and #Waterhouse to embark on a six-year exploration of its #visual #architectural, and #social #functions. #PonteCity was built for #wealthy #whites during the height of #apartheid in the 1970s. But the #citycenter of Johannesburg changed radically when the #moneyedclass moved to the suburbs in the 1980s and migrants from rural South Africa and immigrants from the rest of the continent moved in. Soon Ponte was a towering symbol of #urbandecay. In 2007, developers evicted half the tenants and gutted the apartments, but their redevelopment scheme soon ran aground. At this time, the artists started getting to know the remaining tenants, photographing life in the half #occupied block. They #collected a large archive of documents and #photographs from abandoned apartments, and meticulously photographed every door, window and television set in the building. Ponte City presents a complex narrative about the #socialhistory of Johannesburg, interrogating the relationship between buildings, #ideologies, and #humanmovement.

Do you know the Ponte City tower in the Berea neighbourhood in Joburg South Africa? This incredible tower heights of 173m for 55 floors overlooks the city.  This residential  building can host up to 2,500 people.  Its cylindrical architecture is just stunning, the open center is called the core. The tower was also used as a set for several movies like Resident Evil. We recommend you to visit this incredible tower and the neighbourhood of Hillbrow next to it with @dlalanje. We’ll post soon an article on Facebook ( link ☝️ )  about the amazing experience we had during our tour with them but also about their organization. .

Vista do 51 andar do Ponte Tower. Nossa amiga sul-africana tem amigos com um apartamento no edifício circular que comentamos no post anterior. Então pudemos subir e conferir a vista de lá de cima. Existe tour pago também pela região que inclui a visita nessa torre, e também é possível subir para ver Joburg, apelido carinhoso da cidade. Disseram que o pôr do sol foi lindo nesse dia, mas não conseguimos chegar a tempo. #southafrica #za #africadosul #africa #joburg #joanesburgo #johannesburg #pontecity #pontetower #landscape #skyline #viagem #4pes #desmistificandoomundo

[May 2018, Johannesburg] Incredible history in this building, an up close look at the effects that #apartheid is still having on communities here in South Africa's urban landscape.

Ponte City Tower in Johannesburg. A slightly terrifying and amazing piece of dystopian architecture. With a dark past and a bright future, thanks to these guys.

Ponte Tower. Esse prédio de 55 andares no meio de Joanesburgo foi habitado pelas pessoas mais ricas da África do Sul durante o apartheid. Depois, por diversos motivos, acabou virando uma grande favela vertical que, em certo momento, tinha lixo preenchendo o átrio do prédio até o quinto andar! Hoje ele esta sendo recuperado e tem residentes de classe média. Além disso, esse cenário foi usado para muitos filmes como Resident Evil e Destrito 9. #southafrica #za #africadosul #joburg #joanesburgo #johannesburg #pontecity #pontetower #viagem #amoviajar #sabatico #4pes #desmistificandoomundo

Ponte City is a skyscraper in the Berea neighbourhood, just next to Hillbrow, Johannesburg, South Africa. It was built in 1975 to a height of 173 m (567.6 ft), making it the tallest residential skyscraper in Africa. The 55-story building is cylindrical, with an open centre allowing additional light into the apartments. The centre space is known as "the core" and rises above an uneven rock floor. When built, Ponte City was seen as an extremely desirable address due to its views over all of Johannesburg and its surroundings. The neon sign on top of the building is the largest sign in the southern hemisphere  #PonteCity #Ponte #Johannesburg #Joburg #BlackandBlueSky #skysraper #TallestResidentialBuilding

Y no soy de fotos de edificios pero este si que me robó la atención. #PonteCity Apartments (o Vodacom Tower) es un edificio circular de 52 pisos que sirvió de albergue para miles de familias durante el régimen segregacionista en #Sudáfrica.
___
El abandono estatal del edificio, producto del Apartheid, hizo que cosas como el manejo de las basuras fuera insostenible. Residentes se vieron obligados a tirar las basuras al centro del edificio (desde donde tomé la foto) y la basura alcanzó el piso 14. Luego, retirar la basura tomó 3 años y se encontraron 23 cadáveres entre la montaña de basura.
___
Hoy día, es un edificio que recibe turistas para contar la historia que vieron sus paredes, que intentan superar sus habitantes, y que crean un sentido de conciencia en los visitantes sobre las luchas que ha enfrentado el pueblo sudafricano 🇿🇦.

Segunda vez en Sudáfrica y de cada viaje he regresado con la maleta llena de aprendizajes y admiración de las historias que oímos en sus calles, de sus habitantes y que nos cuentan las paredes. #PonteLove

The core of the amazing 55 stories Ponte city - the tallest residential building in Africa. Used as a location to film “District 9”, “Chappie” and “Resident Evil”. By the 1990s, many gangs moved into the building and it became extremely unsafe. Ponte City became symbolic of the crime and urban decay. The core filled with debris five storeys high as the owners left the building. There were even proposals to turn the building into a highrise prison!

This picture was taken from the 51st floor of the Ponte Tower in Berea, Jozi Town. This iconic cyclical building is very much known for its colorful history. I would strongly recommend the tour that’s provided through @dlalanje 
The pics that can be taken are truly amazing!
