Jo Noero is a South African architect. He made his name internationally during Apartheid, working for NGOs, Desmond Tutu and the Anglican Church on schools, community centers, churches, and homes in the townships, most notably in Soweto. With the coming of democracy, the scope of Noero’s work broadened to include offices, public buildings, schools, and the homes of some of South Africa’s leading struggle heroes, business leaders, and arts personalities. Noero has completed over 200 buildings and is most known for The Red Location Precinct in New Brighton, a township in Port Elizabeth. This was named the Best Building in the World at the 2013 Icon Awards in London, while The Red Location Museum won the Lubetkin Prize in 2006 for the Most Outstanding Building Outside the EU, as well as the Dedalo Minosse President’s Award, The RIBA International Award, and a World Leadership Award for Public Architecture. This publication covers the entire career of Jo Noero, spanning from the initial works to today, and, while providing a portrait of the changing environment of South Africa, offer a comprehensive insight into the professional ethos and disciplinary approach of Noeroarchitects to the design of the built environment.
