Street Level is a collection of drawings and creative writing illustrated and compiled by artist Sarah Markes. It pays homage to the dynamic city of Dar-es-salaam – its architecture, inhabitant and natural environment. The book’s aim is to both document the contemporary life of Dar – its colourful population, street vendors, transport and cuisine – as well as to raise awareness of the threats to its heritage and environment from rapid, poorly-planned and erratically regulated redevelopment. Karen Moon – an architectural historian, who lived in Dar for several years, provides historical background through a fascinating introductory chapter and captions to all the architectural illustrations. Heritage conservation and regeneration specialists, Simon Odunga and Jeremy Cross outline the current state and complexities of architectural conservation in the city. This second edition of Street Level includes fifty new illustrations and a selection of new pieces by Dar-es-salaam’s best contemporary writers.
