The narrative around contemporary Africa’s cosmopolitan cities, exciting young people, vibrant artists, and rapidly evolving promise is, happily, becoming increasingly familiar to people around the globe. In this amazing book, David Adjaye looks at architectural space across the continent, dividing it into regions defined by climates and cultures, rather than artificially-derived national boundaries. Here the Maghreb, the desert, the Sahel, the forest, the Savanna and grasslands, and the mountains and high fields, are the defining features of how different architectures throughout Africa can be witnessed.
