ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE WINNERS IN THE PG BISON 1.618 COMPETITION


On Wednesday 4th October, the PG Bison 1.618 Awards were held at the MESH Club in Rosebank’s Keyes Art Mile. Guests arrived at the stylish cocktail function to support the Top Ten finalists who had been selected during judging in August. 

The fictional brief for 2017 tasked students with transforming an ailing building within one of Johannesburg’s key parks, into a vibrant gastronomic restaurant, with an appreciation and understanding of urban regeneration. The restaurant needed to create a unique and seamlessly linked indoor and outdoor experience for the patrons.
