Choromanski says Manteca is more than a band, it is a project that regards the audience as being part of the group.

“The idea is to bridge into different fields of art where we have a collective of creative and innovative thinkers in a group and in our community, creating social integration in public spaces.”

The approach was similar to that of Jay Pather, the Durban choreographer “who did amazing work with dancers in public spaces”, Choromanski said.

“Carol Brown, with Red Eye, also did public art… Art is meaningful. Art brings people together.

Conversation Collab

In 2013 I participated in ‘Conversations on Architecture.’ It’s always a privilege listening to ideas shared by my peers and to contribute to building the collateral around South African architecture.

Distinguished international speakers from as far afield as UK, Germany and Paraguay together with our local architectural prodigies will be probing important matters pertaining to the ‘built environment’.

Crit’ical

Timeball Tower

When a creative presents an idea – they are open to critique.

This ‘crit’ is a space of inspiration, influence and potential devastation.

We have taken this process of development and turned it into innovation.

Crit, for Choromanski Architects, implies a creative melting space

Music, sculpture, performance intertwined with community, social and economic.

For us, design is a full circle of development and collective influences.
