Abstract:In October 2011, the Goethe-Institut Tanzania hosted and facilitated an international symposium under the name of 'Global City Local Identity?' with a view to debate current issues of city development, public space, and cultural identity in African cities such as Dar es Salaam. The contributions selected for this publication look into the ambiguous, often colonial, past of these cities, describe their dynamic present, and discuss possible directions for their future.

Tomorrow's built heritage of Dar es Salaam: globalist architecture in the local context (Antoni Folkers); 4. Mozambique Island: development and conservation strategies and practises, with focus on the period 1943 to 2011 (Jens Hougaard); 5. Approaching the macuti house: identity and heritage conservation in Ilha de Mošambique (Silje Er°y Sollien); 6. Making cities for the people: in view of re-inventing Dar es Salaam (Camilus Lekule); 7. Suites Architecturales: Kinshasa-Douala-Dakar (DaniŔle Diwouta-Kotto); 8. The arch of memory: urban signage design for Douala historical sites (Sandrine Dole); 9. Rethinking Tanzania's capital: the new town of Dodoma as a product of global politics and conflicting ideologies (Sophie van Ginneken); 10.
