The Palace -I have stayed there twice and it is AWESOME ! ... Next I would say The Voortrekker Monument because an Afrikaner (my ex bf) shagged me (a sout-piel) senseless in there :lol:

Okay its not built in SA, but its designed by a South African & could be the first of many green skyscrapers in the world. Bahrain World Trade Centre. designed by South African architect Shaun Killa, who has designed many skyscrapers in Dubai & the middle east, but none stop you in your tracks as much as this one,



heres the thread for it: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=138906

Why only 3? There are so many great buildings in SA.... Cape Town City Hall, Durban City Hall, Pietermaritzburg City Hall, Free State Raadsaal Bloemfontein, Port Elizabeth Opera House, Feather Market Hall Port Elizabeth, Koeberg Power Station, Groote Schuur Hospital, Ponte City, Conservatoire of Music in Stellenbosch..... and many many many more.... They all have great merit, depending on your set of criteria...
