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.

With contributions by Fasil Giorghis, Dirk E. Hebel, Felix Heisel, Basra Kifle, Zegeye Cherenet Mamo, Sophie Nash, Marta H. Wisniewska,
