African Cities/City Skylines: Good Or Bad?
I want to open a thread on Africa's urban development and its city skylines because a nice skyline also shows the viguour of an economy and moreover it can be of interest to (future) architects or marketing people among us or simply to those who show some interest in countries beyond Nigeria'ss borders,
THIS IS THE SKYLINE OF ABIDJAN (photos all before the crisis)
THIS IS NAIROBI
This is the skyline of Dar esalaam
this is DURBAN
this is CAPE TOWN
THIS IS KAMPALA (uganda)
t[b]his is our neigbour country and its capital Douala[/b]
This is the capital of Ex-Zaire Congo Kinshsha

beautiful, they r just like anyother major cities in the world
|Re: African City Skyline Pictures by vichel(m): 3:43pm On May 30, 2006|
Oh my God what beautiful cities, so these cities are really in Africa? what a marvel, i have never been more proud. I wish our leaders could only do more. I wouldn't want to trade these cities for anywhere else in the world. They are lovely

All we r saaaayiing, give us Lagos and Abujaaaaa
|Re: African City Skyline Pictures by Constantin: 10:11am On May 31, 2006|
Yeah, these cities are A-L-L in Africa, which one do you like most? And why? What do city planners need to do in order to improve African cities? What does a major African city need in order to call itself a "city" in your eyes? I do hope that we can start a debate on these topics. I am a bit sad that we as Nigerians always like to talk about US and UK but never show a lot of interest in our continent as a whole. So please, let´s discuss these topics a bit more, because Nigeria is our homeland and Africa our continent, not Europe nor America (don´t get me wrong, this should not mean that talking of US and UK is not fine)
My2cents, I will try to get some Naija pics , I diidn´t want to post ´em ´cos I thought that everybody knows Abuja and/or Lagos on this forum. , but if you want me to post Nigerian cities, I will try (give me some more time)
|Re: African City Skyline Pictures by my2cents(m): 3:43pm On May 31, 2006|
No shakings Constantin.
I just figured that since this is nairaland, that perhaps Nigeria would be first on the list. Oh well. By the way, I haven't been to Abuja and my only sources are the various naija movies I have seen of the place. I assume it must look good cos I haven't seen any newscast of the place, what with western media always looking to portray the negative and all.
I look forward to the photos. Thanks in advance.
|Re: African City Skyline Pictures by Constantin: 12:22pm On Jun 01, 2006|
My 2 cents, as promised here are a feww photos from Abuja
do you see all the cranes, i love theme especially when they are in Nigeria
Can someone verify if that thing has been built?
highways outside of Abuja
THIS IS ABUJA TOWER IT IS A NEW PROJECT:::IF IT GETS THROUGH THIS WILL BE HIGHER THAN CARLTON TOWER IN SOUTH AFRICA
my2 cents, I hope you will answer me, my brother. Do you think that Abuja looks nice?
|Re: African City Skyline Pictures by my2cents(m): 4:04pm On Jun 01, 2006|
Thanks o! Abuja is bloody nice
I especially like the stadium photo - world class for sure. Armed with these photos and what I see in nollywood movies, guess where one of my destinations will surely be during my next trip to the motherland?
Thanks once again
|Re: African City Skyline Pictures by Constantin: 7:28pm On Jun 01, 2006|
No problem, my brother, I will keep on adding whenever i get new images. if you go, please don´t forget to take some more photos of construction sites, new building, roads etc. , post them on this web so that we all can see.
PS: I feel a bit sad that my thread seems to meet so little interest, do we Nigerians really love our country or Africa?
|Re: African City Skyline Pictures by Constantin: 7:30pm On Jun 01, 2006|
my 2 cents, I have forgotton to say, come and visit this thread beacsue I will be adding photos every now and then,
|Re: African City Skyline Pictures by my2cents(m): 7:36pm On Jun 01, 2006|
I will definitely visit often and definitely will share photos of any naija city I go to. Thanks once again.
and to think you accused me of being "negative as usual" on another thread.
Na wa o. I guess you can't always win LOL
|Re: African City Skyline Pictures by Dauda(m): 6:52am On Jun 05, 2006|
Waow, those pics are good. I wish more non-Africans can see these pics.
|Re: African City Skyline Pictures by my2cents(m): 3:47pm On Jun 05, 2006|
Speaking for myself, I send such photos to oyibo and other nationals who work with me on a daily basis
|Re: African City Skyline Pictures by food4tot(f): 4:25pm On Jun 05, 2006|
This picture seems a bit touched up, I'm sure its Lagos, Nigeria anyway. Just looks too colourful.
It normally looks old, dusty and run down to me when I view it from the ThirdMainland bridge though.
|Re: African City Skyline Pictures by Dauda(m): 6:04pm On Jun 05, 2006|
I sure will.
|Re: African City Skyline Pictures by Ndipe(m): 5:07am On May 18, 2007|
Abidjan is beautiful!
Yaounde, not Douala, is the capital of Cameroon.
