Colonial architecture and urbanism in Africa created a built environment purposely suited to the administrative apparatus of empire: architecture and urbanism sought to project the authority of the European powers while simultaneously stabilizing the fragile European identity at the colonial frontier. This book seeks to uncover the multiple ways in which colonial architectural and urban design practices reconstituted colonial cities in Africa.
