Learning Spaces in Africa traces the development of school building design in Western and Southern Africa from the mid-19th to the early 21st century. In doing so, Uduku explores the architecture, socio-political, and economic policy factors that have contributed to the state of current school design, and by extension, education in Africa. Her analysis draws attention to the past historic links of schools to development processes in pre-colonial missionary settings to their re-emergence as development hubs in the 21st century.
