Urban Planning in Lusophone African Countries








Reviews: ‘Carlos Nunes Silva’s edited volume gives an account of urban planning in Lusophone African cities for an Anglophone readership for the first time. It thereby contributes to overcoming the linguistic barriers that constrain planning discourse and practice in Africa. This makes it an important book for those interested in comparing colonial planning legacies and understanding their on-going impact on Africa’s cities.’
Lindsay Bremner, University of Westminster, UK

'Have you ever wondered how history and culture shape current and future urban patterns and forms? Now you have a key reference with some good pointers and relevant answers from a range of well researched and rich experiences. This easy-to-read volume is a must for anyone aiming at understanding the urban planning legacies in Lusophone African countries and beyond. This publication will go down as one of the rare urban planning source books on Lusophone countries available to English-speaking audiences. In that way, it fills a huge language and scientific gap.'
Remy Sietchiping, UN-Habitat, Nairobi, Kenya

‘The thematic chapters of this important volume blaze a trail in many respects. It is the first major comprehensive text in English on colonial and post-colonial urban planning in Lusophone African countries. Together, the chapters do a marvellous job of interrogating the avowed and covert aims of colonial and contemporary urban planning in these countries. It is a “must-read” for anyone with an interest in modernist urban planning from historical and contemporary perspectives. The editor must be commended for assembling the respected team of scholars that contributed to the volume.’
