Afrikaans Language Monument Reviews
More info about Afrikaans Language Monument
The youngest language in the world today, Afrikaans is celebrated at the Afrikaans Language Monument in Paarl, South Africa. Located on the slopes of Paarl Mountain, the monument can be seen for miles around, its highest column rising 57m into the air.
Borne out of the idea that Afrikaans is essentially the language linking both Europe and Africa, and the fact that it spread rapidly throughout South Africa, the monument designers used freeform concrete structures to represent the many facets of the language and its people.
The three tall columns represent the enlightened West which flows down to three half circles on a podium representing the magical and mysterious Africa. Other sections of the structure represent the cultures that contributed to the language, namely African, San, Dutch, British, Malay and French. There is a great deal of geometry involved in the placement of the structures and the onsite info boards provide an explanation.
