Some of The Diverse Contemporary Architecture of Africa…

The diverse continent of Africa is also host to diverse architectural projects, but many people outside of the continent are unaware (save for probably Kere’s lovely structures based on the local vernacular). Thanks to a wonderful slideshow post by Victor Delaqua of ArchDaily, we can catch a glimpse of some of the varied contemporary design projects installed in Africa. Of the 18 selected buildings from Mr. Delaqua’s original post (from 14 countries), here are my 7 favorite architectural projects from that post.
