David Adjaye Associates took 11 years to visit all African countires and document its architecture.
I hope they invite him to give a talk/lecture on decolonising architecture.
I was shocked at the inside of UCTs Computer science building where the lecture took place. It looked like a drab old state hospital. Get the art/design students in to give it a make over. Hideous! Universities world wide, Mbembe mentioned will soon be a thing of the past!
