Fingal County Council’s Architects Department is hosting a presentation and talk by now retired South African Architect and Urban Designer, Heinrich Kammeÿer, which promises to be an interesting overview of his long and distinguished career as both an educator and practitioner; he is very well known amongst architects in South Africa for his inspiring lectures!

Heinrich Kammeÿer qualified in 1971 with a B.Arch degree from the University of Cape Town (UCT), South Africa, where he was a Class Medallist and was awarded the Helen Gardner Travel Grant and the Pilkington’s Tile Bursary and Scholarships.

In 1972 he became a studio master at UCT School of Architecture. He later went on to teach at various South African Universities, including ten years at The University of the Witwatersrand, ten years at the University of Pretoria, five years at the Tshwane University of Technology and most recently at the University of Johannesburg.

His academic career is supplemented by a rich body of built work. Projects include the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa (1976-1980, design competition winner, voted as one of the best buildings of the 20th century), various houses and housing developments, mixed use developments, large scale urban design projects, community, educational and health care facilities. He was also project architect on the Mapungubwe Interpretation Centre which was voted as World Building of the Year at the World Architecture Festival in 2009.

He holds a M.Arch (1992; Thesis: Teaching Decision Making) and a Ph.D. (2011) from the University of Pretoria, with his Ph.D. thesis on ‘Reciprocity in the evolution of self through the making of homes as artifacts: A phenomenological study of the BaSotho female in her vernacular architecture’, or informally abbreviated to: As you make you get made.

His other interest includes southern African archaeology and rock art, and collecting succulents, flowers, and trees indigenous to Southern Africa.
