William Nicol 4: the borderlands. This is the point immediately beyond the curve in the road. objectively speaking, we would assume this wouldn't form part of the Greater JHB area. Yet this road offers a juxtaposition between the two worlds. Immediately after this - we reach Diepsloot. Thus we can further emphasize the notion of extreme societal contradictions.

William Nicol 5: the Fringe. We are immediately confronted with a direct contradiction. This contradictory premise is fundamentally  based around our perception of metropolitan life.

The Circa on Jellicoe: The building is situated just off Jan smuts avenue, before the William Nicole begins. This image is important because it defines the modernity of culture.
