The Eviction Economy


The Red Ants Security and Relocation Service has re-branded and diversified itself since re-starting its government contracts in 2014. Since then, Red Ants has constructed infrastructural projects, Agri-parks and sports facilities and contributed handsomely to many more wealthy causes. This project proposes a new Headquarters building to grow what is often referred to as a paramilitary operation in the iconic diamond building and previous home of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, designed by German architect Helmut Jahn in 1981.
