The Senegalese city of Dakar, investing in  speculation of vertical constructions, sees its old neighborhoods jostled. Centenary trees are cut down. Construction sites, concrete, construction sand abound; brownfields, colonial buildings and old neighborhoods of origins will turn into islands. Dakar is a megalopolis which has its origins in Lebou constructions. Their memories haunt spaces.
