MetadataShow full item record
This research aims to investigate the means and method of rediscovering the Identity of Indians in South Africa. It seems that in times of change, were people are now located in different parts of South Africa as opposed to before, the identities of people are being re-assessed and progressing in the new places they belong to. Cultural memory is therefore investigated to find the means in which societies can remember and rediscover their once cherished identities. Place and time form a major part of the identities of people. This is looked at in relation to memory and architecture and how these links work together. This research aims, through the use of architecture and memory to locate the necessary theories, ideologies and tools to rediscover the Indian identity in Durban.
