Afri­ca a con­ti­nent of small vil­la­ges in the jung­le and savan­nah? Cer­tain­ly not. The urba­ni­sa­ti­on of the con­ti­nent is advan­cing rapidly, while Afri­can cities and metro­po­li­tan regi­ons are among the fas­test gro­wing in the world. “Afri­ca Drawn” pres­ents one hund­red of the most con­nec­ted and important cities of the con­ti­nent. A visu­al feast of three hund­red images and mas­ter­ful­ly drawn plans illus­tra­tes con­tem­pora­ry and his­to­ri­cal place-making actions in Afri­ca. The result is simul­ta­ne­ous­ly an artis­tic and visual­ly fasci­na­ting docu­men­ta­ti­on of Afri­can urban space and a con­vin­cing ana­ly­sis of its struc­tu­re and mor­pho­lo­gy, thus pro­vi­ding a spa­ti­al point of depar­tu­re for all inte­rested par­ties. The drawings are accom­pa­nied by intro­duc­to­ry texts and, for the first time, ren­der pos­si­ble a com­pa­ri­son of the diver­se urban form on the con­ti­nent. The stu­dy attempts to pro­vi­de an indis­pensable resour­ce of spa­ti­al and fi gure ground pat­terns in the con­text of urban space in Afri­ca.
