Shane’s Mega-block measures 1 k  1 k, with a large variety of functions and forms within a substantially rural fabric. This fabric is more complex in forms and functions in comparison to the Desakota model in the way it combines and overlaps a large variety of urban uses. Each tone of the landscape in this model is like an exchanging patch, a patch-dynamic [2], where functional features are mixed and ambiguous. What is mono-tonal does not activate the urban life of the Mega-block, therefore all the layers are intertwined.

We suggest here that, if artistic tendencies can be studied to explore rituals and anthropological uses, this should be applied to architecture, too, especially for what concerns the formation of the anthropological image of a city. In the case of Dar es Salaam, we refer to one of the most prominent artistic movements in Tanzania started around 1970, called Tingatinga [5], after the name of its inventor Edward Tingatinga. Tingatinga’s works introduce us to an interesting research in painting, using recycled materials like pieces of wood and paint for bicycles.

Sites like the railway stations of Magakawe or Yombo, or even the industrial plants along Pugu Road, are more like barriers instead of ecotional thresholds that structure the overall urban system. At the same time, at the small scale of the informal district, informal dwellings introduce a recurring constructive persistency that constitutes a reference for the navigation of the city. Such settlements establish an innovative compromise between urban and rural environments within the city-region.
