"Pius Edmond Pahl: A Retrospective"
2002-02-16 until 2002-03-31
Sasol Art Museum, University of Stellenbosch
Stellenbosch, , ZA South Africa

Pius Pahl, born 1909 in Germany, is one of the great icons of Modernism. He was part of the Bauhaus, the cradle of the International style and embodies its credo. Pahl is a skilled carpenter, builder, glassier, designer, artist and architect. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was his teacher and friend and his associates included Le Corbusier.

He and his wife settled in South Africa and for the past thirty years lived in Stellenbosch. His influences as a teacher and practicing architect are estimable. He was a lecturer in architecture at the University of Cape Town from 1952 to 1954. He has also lectured and gave talks on architecture at other venues.

Pahl is well known internationally and nationally and has received several awards including a gold Medal from the South African Institute of Architects. Some of his work is included in the permanent Bauhaus exhibition in Berlin, Germany.

The University Museum wishes to acknowledge his merit as an architect and master builder.

The exhibition opens on Saturday 16 February at 10.30 and closes Sunday 31 March.

Venue: Sasol Art Museum, 52 Ryneveld Street, Stellenbosch
