Rush Hour Rest Stop is shelter built out of gutted shells of old cars. We were invited to Durban with no specific task or space given.

When visiting Durban for the first time, we met Doung, a Durban-based artist and architect focusing on post-apartheid spatial practices. He took us on a city walk, which brought us to the highway, which is the main entrance point into Durban. Parallel to this lies a pedestrian path that connects the townships in the West to Warwick Junction, a knot of underpasses and overpasses, tunnels, train and bus station, where a massive and bustling informal market lives and breathes. This is what best represents the African city.
