Urban Africa – A photographic journey by David Adjaye

  • Comment

David Adjaye has turned photographer for a new exhibition at the Design Museum

Adjaye, the principal of Adjaye Associates, has documented the growth of key cities in Africa for the 2010 exhibition at the Design Museum, Urban Africa – A photographic journey by David Adjaye.

The exhibition, which opens in March, is part of the architect’s ongoing project to study new patterns of urbanism in Africa and address the scant knowledge of the African continent’s built environment. 

Adjaye has photographed the salient features of Africa’s cities including suburban settlements, unofficial developments and townscapes. The exhibition aims to ‘Reveal a unique snapshot of life in Africa today, documenting the nature of urban life in a developing country, a unique geo-cultural survey profiling the African city in a global context.’
