Transforming V&A’s grain silos into Africa’s largest contemporary art museum

After four years of cutting, carving and engineering what at times seemed near impossible, the V&A Waterfront’s giant, historic grain silo has been transformed into the world’s largest museum dedicated to contemporary art from Africa. In an architectural and engineering feat, the nearly 100-year-old grain silo, made up of vertical tubes, was shaped into the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) and opened to much acclaim in September.
