Ilze Wolff is an architect, a scholar, and a writer who is the founder of the research and documenting organisation Open House Architecture, and has featured as the curator for Architecture and Built Environment at the Design Indaba Expo in 2015. She has an intersectional approach to architecture which has led her to pursue a Masters in African Studies where she looked at heritage, architectural history and public culture. She also directs Cape Town-based design studio Wolff Architects with Heinrich Wolff. Wolff believes that there are many ways to be an architect and is constantly inspired by how people inhabit spaces and the narratives that come out of those contexts. For Season 4, Wolff combines her love for research, zine-making, and the built environment to produce a piece titled Vi die wat wil wiet / for those who need knowing. Produced in collaboration with theatre-maker Francesco Nassimbeni and musicologist Cara Stacey, and with additional research by writer and researcher Amy Soudien, the piece seeks to present a previously undocumented history of the area of Maboneng.
