‘blank_Architecture, Apartheid and After’ was a travelling exhibition produced by the Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAi) in 1998-99. South African philosopher and architect Hilton Judin, in cooperation with a team of sixty architects, photographers, filmmakers, and writers researched the history of South-African architecture and urban planning and development during and after Apartheid.

‘blank_Architecture, Apartheid and After’ presented the results of this research, exhibiting in Rotterdam, Berlin and Pretoria. A book by the same name followed in response to the exhibition. It is an anthology of some forty essays, both written and photographic, exploring themes such as community, homeland, environment, power and race in South Africa. It is illustrated with 300 archival images, architectural drawings and photographs.

Buckland was a contributing photographer for both the exhibition and the book.
