Taxi's in the wall


One of the latest art pieces to be installed in the city centre as part of the Route 67 initiative is a row of taxi's inbedded in the wall on Whites Road across the road from the Opera House.  The piece was done by Mark Wilby in collaboration with Bongani Njalo, Bamanye Ngxale, Jason Olivier, Gabriel Chaponda and Siya Mboniswa.  The discription in the Route 67 brochure states the following:
"History is often shaped by momentous events, while cities with their alleys, streets and avenues are formed by the layered rhythms of the daily necessity.  This rhythm of place, shaped by the everyday, becomes the song of the city."


  1. An interesting way to retire taxis.

  2. Maybe the best (safest) place to park the taxi's?? ;-)

  3. Taxis on the wall is good idea to attract tourist and local visitors. DTW Airport Taxi is always ready to serve 24 hours a day.
