Revue de presse

An excellent overview of Asmara's colonial past, the ambitious building program of its Italian occupants, and its present condition. --Modernism Magazine

Présentation de l'éditeur

Asmara, the capital of the small East African country of Eritrea, bordering the Red Sea, is one of the most important and exciting architectural 'discoveries' of recent years. Built almost entirely in the 1930s by the Italians, who transformed it into a hotbed of radical architectural innovation, Asmara has one of the highest concentrations of Modernist architecture anywhere in the world. This superb building-by-building survey, illustrated with previously unpublished archival material and specially commissioned photography, chronicles the colonial past and remarkable survival of a city that has evocatively been described as the 'Miami of Africa'.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent for the arm chair traveler and history buff 11 mars 2004
Par Ron T. - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I spent several years living with my family in Asmara as a young boy. Now as an adult I've been searching for a book that would allow my to do some arm chair traveling back to my former home. Mr. Denison's book allowed me to do that in both word and picture. The book is broken up into a general history section followed by detailed photos on the major architecture of Asmara in each of the significant eras, and offers both vintage and current photographs and design plans of the buildings in the city.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An authoritative work 8 septembre 2005
Par Starks - Publié sur
Format: Relié
A very important work that includes both the Eritrean history and the architectural mystique and prominence of this otherwise unknown city.

I applaud the authors for helping to preserve Eritrea's architectural treasures, which stand as a true gem compared with the rest of the African continent. Outlined in the book are those that were spared from the marauding British and greedy Ethiopian invaders and withstood decades of war.

I spent my formative years living in Asmara, and was interested in reading about all the wonderful buildings in town. The writers did a good job gathering up all the tidbits of information. Asmara is a town that has changed little over the years, but one thing that has completely changed from my childhood years is the street names. I knew names such as Queen Elizabeth Blvd and Haile Selassie Avenue, but these names are long gone, Because of that I would have been lost trying to figure out the location of the buildings if the authors had not thought to include the old street name and current street names. I also loved having the blueprints available, plus original photos and current photos that detail any changes to the structure over the years. My one complaint is related to the maps. It is probably no the authors fault, but the old maps they included are all but unreadable. They were probably reproduced as well as they could be, but that doesn't help us trying to decipher what they say. I am tempted to say it might have been better without the old maps that a person can't read. The new map was helpful.

I spent seven years living and working in Asmara and was fascinated by its architecture. To compliment Asmara the city, are its citizens, the Asmarinos-friendly, dedicated, hardworking and very proud.

Looking through the pages of this book brought back great memories of my time in Asmara. I was able to view the dedicated work of the Cultural Assets Rehabilitation Project (CARP) in the inner, historical quarter of the city. To see these old buildings come back to life was a joy to behold; especially the devotion to restoring the buildings authentically.

Anyone who has visited this timeless city will be captivated by the journey through the pages of this book. Originally aimed at people in the architectural business, the book reaches out to any reader with its photographic portrayal of one of the world's unique cities.

An extremely well researched and written book; the authors have devoted a great deal of time into their research with getting every aspect of Asmara's development history correct. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and commend it to anyone who has ever visited Asmara. Ane Asmara yefetwa eyee.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A 'must' for any college-level collection strong in architecture and modern urban landscapes. 7 mars 2007
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Edward Denison, Guang Yu Ren and Naigzy Gebremedhin's ASMARA: AFRICA'S SECRET MODERNIST CITY examines the nature and architectural innovations of a city which holds one of the highest concentrations of Modernist architecture in the world. Experts with detailed knowledge of the city survey many of the structures, add notes from previously unpublished archival material, and include original photography not to be seen elsewhere. A 'must' for any college-level collection strong in architecture and modern urban landscapes.
