During the mid 20th century the world went into space mania and Africa was no exception. The continent was filled with new and exciting alien buildings, just as the outer atmosphere would do.
Here are some of the greatest!
Bujumbura International Airport, Burundi
One of the coolest little airports in the world. Made up out of 7 little domes, they let light through all day long.
The CNPS building, Cameroon
It’s huge brown tower, Glass atrium and giant gold rock that crashed into it is truly mind boggling!
Govermental Buildings of Cameroon
These buildings are without a doubt the coolest governmental buildings I’ve ever come across.
Nabemba Tower, Congo
Ponte City Appartments, SA
Round towers are always cool
Memorial to the Martyrs, Burkina Faso
The building could not look more like an alien space ship if it was one, and it is a magnificent building.
Stanbic Bank, Uganda
One of my favourite buildings.
Africa created some of the most amazing buildings in the modern era. Here’s hoping that Africa will continue be amazing and creative and beautiful into the future.
