Capture your sense, your impressions, your image of the year 2007 in a space bubble, a capsule to be preserved for posterity. Your client, a major (fictional!) company, is commissioning an architectural structure as part of its contribution to a more socially and environmentally aware environment. Design a structure that captures the essence of 2007 in South Africa, and contains all significant contents within 500m3 of space. Your building is a personal reflection of what it means to be alive in South Africa in 2007. It's a physical 'archive' that freezes a point in time that may be discovered by archeologists 80 or 100 years from now, and will give that generation a flashback showing the essence of life in South Africa in 2007.
