BRT Artwork by Bronwyn Kotzen and myself

Initially, by mapping out the tree coverage ratio within the containing north south axis boundaries of Empire Road and the M2 Highway, and the east west axis boundaries of Charlton Road and the M1 Highway, the fact that “Johannesburg is one of the most treed cities in the world” is celebrated. This exclusively identifying quality separates the city as not only a unique metropolis within South Africa, but within the global community as a whole.


The graphic as an entirety seeks to create a figure ground to emphasise the tree coverage to space ratio found within the inner city that gives Johannesburg one of its many unique characteristics. This graphic is focused onto the area surrounding Braamfontein Metro Centre and the Constitutional Court of South Africa and further concentrated around the Joubert Street Ext Station. This approach contextualises the tree densification quality around this particular station within the inner city.
