The extensive coalfields in the Gauteng region are an ecological hazard and at present have no future management-planning once the coal is depleted or is no longer used as an energy source. Simultaneously, South Africa has for over a decade experienced rolling blackouts necessitating retrofitting many powerstations. This project looks to intercept this trajectory towards more coal extraction and power generation by imagining an alternative “energy-landscape” of more renewable energy sources. Importantly, the project does not propose specific future landscape or architectural outcomes but rather speculates on how the logics of extractive processes - in this case coal mining - can be re-adapted to create a more sustainable landscape. The entire Witbank coalfield region is studied to formulate an indexical approach to the territorial recalibration of the energy-generating/transmission infrastructure by focusing on the Anglo Kleinkopje Colliery as a specific case study to speculate on the future South African energy landscape.
