PharoX is an African innovation that speaks to the world about our ancient and contemporary history. It is a beacon of inspiration, to bring people together and will serve as a landmark symbol of hope and innovation for South Africa and the world.
PharoX is an installation artwork conceived by award winning artist Christopher Swift and developed with architect and urban visionary Mokena Makeka as a space for inclusiveness and a shining symbol of possibility.
It will be constructed on top of Signal Hill and will stand proud and liberated against the backdrop of the international, award winning Cape Town Stadium, Robben Island and Table Mountain.
PharoX2014 will serve as conservation piece and a symbol of the World Design Capital 2014.
The purpose of PharoX is multi-layered: A lighthouse for possibility; a giant candle of celebration and acknowledgment; a gateway to Africa. In essence it is a project to project inclusiveness and cohesion, for a sustainable and brighter South Africa
