MOGADISHU: LOST MODERNS. Rashid Ali. Mosaic Rooms, London, 2014. Distributed 2016 in the U.S.A. by University of Chicago Press. 112 pp. with 114 ills. (58 col.). 27 x 24 cm. ISBN 9789950313491 In English.
Publisher's description: The true story of a city is often best told through its architecture. The story of Mogadishu -- frequently reduced to one of conflict and destruction -- is beautifully revealed in Mogadishu: Lost Moderns. In this book, Somali-British architect Rashid Ali and British photographer Andrew Cross present a fresh and uncommon portrait of the Somalian city, revealing how its architecture has reshaped and defined it -- from colonization to independence and from antiquity to modernism -- as one of the most important cities in the Horn of Africa. Richly illustrated with both archival and specially commissioned photos of the city, this book highlights a Mogadishu never before seen -- at least not quite like this.
