Abstract

This essay charts the resonance of colonial urbanism in contemporary urban renewal projects in the Angolan port city of Lobito. It traces how the city's aesthetics and design reflect and produce its social, material and economic connections throughout the cyclical ups and downs of its fortunes. While Angola has undergone profound political, ideological, social and economic change since the beginning of the twentieth century, Lobito's architecture still echoes with the logics and needs of extractive capitalism.
