Ese, Anders


Anders Ese specialises in urban development in the overlap between the fields of urbanism, social sciences, and historical research in East and Southern Africa, and has worked extensively on issues related to urbanisation, urban design, poverty, identities, and sustainability through academic, consultancy work, and teaching. Ese holds a PhD on mapping, data collection, and analysis of complex urban settings in Nairobi, Kenya. He has established and run interdisciplinary practices in both Norway and Tanzania in the cross section between architectural production and urbanism, and holds extensive knowledge from practice for private, municipal, county government and national government clients. His recent book The City Makers of Nairobi (Routledge 2020) explores African urban identities in Nairobi during the colonial period, arguing that the city’s cosmopolitan African population had a far greater impact on urban developments than what is popularly believed.
