Abstract:This collection is a study of the process by which European planning concepts and practices were transmitted, diffused and diverted in various colonial territories and situations. The socio-political, geographical and cultural implications are analysed here through case studies from the global South, namely from French and British colonial territories in Africa as well as from Ottoman and British Mandate Palestine. Contributions on Africa: Symbolic usage of the 'garden city' concept during the French Protectorate of Morocco: from the Howardian model to garden housing estates (Charlotte Jelidi); From metropolitan to colonial planning: Dakar between garden city and cité-jardin (Liora Bigon); The 'plateau' in West African, French-speaking colonial towns: between garden and city (Alain Sinou); The afterlife of the Lanchester Plan: Zanzibar as the garden city of tomorrow (Garth Andrew Myers and Makame Ali Muhajir).
