Maputo ModernGraham Foundation grant recipient for the project “Maputo Modern: The Changing Identities of an African City”. The project tells story of a place, the people who shaped it, and the forces of history that built a city and then froze it in time. Through previously unpublished photos, architectural drawings, and maps, this book will provide a never before seen view of the evolution of a country and its complex peoples through the city they left behind. With Art Deco theaters, mid-century modern hotels, climate-sensitive schools, modernist housing blocks, and Rationalist civic buildings, Maputo, Mozambique is one of the most important collections of African modern architecture and is almost completely unknown outside the Portuguese-speaking world.
