Groentemarktplein in Kaapstad. The gray tower is the Western Cape Provincial Administration Building, "Zille Tower" (4 Dorp Street), designed by architect Johannes David Prins (Hannes) van der Merwe (1924-2012). The plan for the renovation of this building is made by Jakupa Architects and CS Studio Architects. The building with the red and gray colors is the Burg Street Parkade, also called Van der Stel Building, by architect Max Policansky (1909-); the building was originally white.

"Hannes van der Merwe, argitek en skrywersvriend", by J.C. Kannemeyer; Pretoria 2006.

Met die "groot vyf" wolkekrabbers in die stadskern wysig Hannes van der Merwe saam met ander, in die jare sestig en sewentig, die luglyn van Kaapstad: die Naspers-gebou, die Cartwright-hoekgebou, die uitbreiding aan die kantore van die Kaaplandse Provinsiale Administrasie se gebou, die Suid-Afrikaanse Reserwebank en die Kaapstadse Burgersentrum (vandag die Unistad-hoofkantoor). Maar Hannes van der Merwe is veel meer as bloot argitek. Hy was jare lank betrokke by die Kaaplandse Raad vir die Uitvoerende Kunste en die Raad van Trustees van die Suid-Afrikaanse Kunsmuseum en het selfs op sy dag 'n bietjie toneel gespeel. Een van die boeiendste fasette van sy lewe is sy vriendskap met belangrike skrywers en joernaliste - Boerneef, D.J. Opperman, Piet Cillie en Izak de Villiers - waaroor daar in hierdie boek meer vertel word.
