Light On A Hill: Building The Constitutional Court Of South Africa celebrates the most important building of South Africa's new democracy. Richly illustrated by photographer Angela Buckland, the book leads the reader on a journey from Constitution Square to the quiet heart of the Court. The text of the book, compiled and edited by Bronwyn Law-Viljoen is made up of a series of interviews with Chief Justice Pius Langa, Justices Johann Kriegler, Yvonne Mokgoro and Albie Sachs, the architects, the building contractor and Ambassador Thenjiwe Mtintso.

Many others give insight into their vision of the building as a structure that gives architectural expression to the idea of transformation and to the values of democracy and ubuntu.
