The AFROPOLIS of tomorrow: Mediating splintered networks through Transit Oriented Development in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
Transit Oriented Development (TOD) ought to be the answer to the contradictory demands of keeping rapidly urbanising African cities competitive in an arising globalised economy, while also meeting increased responsibilities for social problems and for making local economic development less exclusionary. TOD promises increased accessibility, safety and economic growth with relatively low resources. It may, however, have unexpected and detrimental consequences, pushing the local and already segregated even further out. This project aims to understand, integrate and bring together the polarised local socio-spatial networks of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania for an inclusive and resilient future city.
