‘Urban Africa’ David Adjaye at Design Museum, London

Just heard about this exhibit at the Design Museum in London.  Closing soon – last day 5th September:

‘Urban Africa’

“An epic act of homage to a continent”
Observer newspaper
One of the leading architects of his generation, David Adjaye has stepped out of his regular line of work to photograph and document key cities in Africa as part of an ongoing project to study new patterns of urbanism. Often regarded as a continent defined by underdevelopment, poverty, war and tourism, through this exhibition Adjaye presents Africa in a different light, examining the buildings and places which have a special resonance with his preoccupations as an architect.
This detailed survey reveals a unique snapshot of urban Africa today, documenting the nature of city life in a developing continent: a unique geo-cultural survey profiling the African city in a global context.
