South Africa is known for diversity in cultures and languages. Eleven official languages are
recognized in the constitution. Two of these languages are of European origin: Afrikaans, a language which originated mainly from Dutch that is spoken by the majority of white and colored South
Africans, and South African English. Though English is commonly used in public and commercial life, it is only the fifth most-spoken home language.
South Africa is ethnically diverse. About 79.5% of the South African population is of black
African ancestry, divided among a variety of ethnic groups speaking different Bantu languages, nine of which have official status. South Africa also contains the largest communities of European, Asian, and racially mixed ancestry in Africa.
The concept for this space layout was designed with South Africa’s diversity in mind. It
encompasses the major aspects of their daily lives such as unity, culture, and their long history.
