In its short history, spanning just over one hundred years, the Kenyan capital Nairobi has grown to be one of the most cosmopolitan and multifaceted cities of our contemporary world. In the context of the city’s complex colonial and post-independence development, migration has reinforced ethnic, spatial, and economic differences, leading to the emergence of multiple power structures. This process is evident in the city’s architectural production, as well as in its radically diverse urban patterns and cultures. This book examines specific neighborhoods and documents how these cultures of urban life constitute and shape the city
