A beautifully produced 7-volume slipcased survey of Africa's architecture: One of the most original and important architectural publications of our time

Over ten-years, the Tanzanian born, London-based architect has visited 53 major African cities and photographed thousands of buildings, sites and places that few of us will ever be able to visit.


The individual volumes present cities according to the terrain in which they are situated – the Maghreb, Desert, The Sahel, Savannah and Grassland, Mountain and Highveld, and Forest. Each city is shown in a concise history, fact file, maps and satellite images, along with Adjaye’s own travel notes and dozens of photographs of the city’s civic, commercial and residential architecture. All six ‘terrain’ volumes feature an introductory essay by Adjaye, and a separate volume is dedicated to essays by leading academics and commentators on Africa.
