Keywords: Luanda, Maputo, Urban studies, Colonial architecture, Heritages of Portuguese influence
AbstractFrom the perspective of urban studies, this article provides an account of the evolution and heritages of Luanda and Maputo. Drawing on notions of capitalness and heritages of Portuguese influence, the article argues for a reconciliation with the legacies of material culture and their intergration into the daily imaginary of post-independence Mozambique and Angola.
