Asma­ra, the capi­tal of the small East Afri­can coun­try of Eri­trea, bor­de­ring the Red Sea, is one of the most important and exci­ting archi­tec­tu­ral ‘dis­co­ve­ries’ of recent years. Built almost ent­i­re­ly in the 1930s by the Ita­li­ans, who trans­for­med it into a hot­bed of radi­cal archi­tec­tu­ral inno­va­ti­on, Asma­ra has one of the hig­hest con­cen­tra­ti­ons of Moder­nist archi­tec­tu­re any­whe­re in the world. This superb buil­ding-by-buil­ding sur­vey, illus­tra­ted with pre­vious­ly unpu­blished archi­val mate­ri­al and spe­ci­al­ly com­mis­sio­ned pho­to­gra­phy, chro­ni­cles the colo­ni­al past and remar­kab­le sur­vi­val of a city that has evo­ca­tively been descri­bed as “the Mia­mi of Afri­ca”.
