For more info, contact: About the Rocket Factory: A building, speculated to have once been a place where rocket parts were manufactured, carries its legacy in the artwork by Marcus Neustetter. This artwork has been proposed in conjunction with the coming transformation of the building. The facade artwork, a Google Earth trace of the area (a satellite's perspective sent to space by rockets), a rocket sculpture on the roof and an integrated design language throughout the building, marries artistic expression, reference to the mysteries and myths surrounding this building and contemporary living. Art, design and functional living are fused into a visionary new development - The Rocket Factory (279 Commissioner Street) About Marcus Neustetter Born 1976 in Johannesburg, Marcus Neustetter earned his Masters Degree in Fine Arts in 2001 from the University of the Witwatersrand.
