An Echo Without a Medium

Benjamin Tiven
Artists' Books
14.5 × 20.5 × 0.7 cm

An Echo Without a Medium examines the German architect Ernst May and

the complex legacies of his work in colonial Kenya from 1933-1953, parsing

the relationship between his architectural logic and political dislocation. Through

photographs, video, sculpture and text, three of May’s designs come under consideration:

a failed prototype for pre-fabricated housing, an apartment complex in downtown Nairobi,

and a now-demolished resort hotel in the Kenyan coastal city of Mombasa.
