My daughter-in-law Jo Gaffkin is technical manager at the Design Museum in London and at the moment they have a very interesting exhibition at the museum:
“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 will reveal a unique snapshot of life in Africa today, documenting the nature of urban life in a developing continent, a unique geo-cultural survey profiling the African city in a global context.”
Is the picture David Adjaye? Nope, it’s Jo and husband Jan Chanter on top of the mighty Victoria Falls! Now there’s a photo!
