Addis Ababa: A Manifesto on African Progress

Dirk E. Hebel, Felix Heisel, Marta H. Wisniewska, Sophie Nash

‘Addis Ababa: Manifesto on African Progress’ examines the Ethiopian capital as a case study in advocating a new architecture of belonging in times of rapid urbanization. Following a short history of the city’s development, the authors offer 12 manifesto points stressing the importance of local culture and community building in creating the contemporary African metropolis. A final section includes proposals for new housing projects in Addis Ababa aimed at forging a more-sustainable architecture and urbanism.
