Erky Wood retires

After four decades of inspirational leadership, the shareholders of GAPP Architects and Urban Designers are sad to announce that Erky Wood is retiring as a Director and shareholder to wind down his daily work load and management commitments to enjoy more leisure time; and to focus on a more selective project portfolio.

We make this announcement with our heartfelt appreciation for his immense contributions to the company, our industry and his unwavering commitment and contribution the urban development community in South Africa.

As a long standing leader of GAPP, he has shaped the face of cities across Africa and contributed to the global practice and knowledge base of urban design. His achievements were recognised in his selection by UDISA to deliver the 2017 Roelof Uytenbogaardt memorial lecture.

While Erky will no longer be involved in the management of GAPP, he will always be part of the GAPP family. He will continue to contribute to GAPP projects in a specialist consulting capacity after his official retirement on 31st May 2021.
