University of Pretoria Old Arts Building, Aula and Faculty of Engineering, Information Technology and the Built Environment, Hatfield Campus, Pretoria.
Pretoria

The Old Arts Building is one of the most well-known and oldest buildings on the Hatfield Campus of the University of Pretoria. The foundation stone of the building, designed by a student of Sir Herbert Baker, Percy Eagle, was laid in 1910 and declared a national monument in 1968. Today it accommodates the UP Archives, Department of UP Arts, Mapungubwe Museum and the Van Tilburg collection. Across the rolling lawns, framed by majestic trees, is the home of the Faculty of Engineering, Information Technology and the Built Environment, one of the tallest buildings on the campus. Along Libri Lane to the left of the Old Arts Building is the famous Aula, the University of Pretoria’s auditorium that regularly hosts some of the best local and international choirs, orchestras, singers, musicians and other performers. Across from the Aula, in Chancellor’s Lane, is one of many buildings housing the Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences.

More About Africa

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
