David Adjaye's African Architecture Photo Survey


Take a sneak peek at architect David Adjaye's photo travelogue, forthcoming in a new compact edition of "Adjaye: Africa: Architecture," an original seven-volume, visual study of 54 African cities. Compiled between 2000 and 2010, the resulting work is a culmination of Adjaye's lifelong dream to travel through Africa and document the continent's built environment. Here, we excerpt the architect's notes, alongside a few images from the new edition, coming out in Sept. 2016 with Thames & Hudson. All photos by David Adjaye, © 2011 and 2016 Adjaye Associates.
