Matata Books - Tsavo - The Money-Eaters

The Money-Eaters

Lando's innovative design for the TSAVO Man-Eaters Motel, inspired by John H. Patterson's 1907 novel "The Man Eaters of Tsavo", was abandoned in mid-construction in the 1970s. 'Ghost Directors' had plundered the funds.
Nothing prepared Lando and his English wife Eleanor for the roller-coaster ride that lay ahead. Political, financial, and family crises appear out of nowhere.
Dear Braz,
As a young architect I worked with you in Nairobi in 1973-74. I am now old and often think about how I have lived my life as a professional and time after time dreams from my Nairobi time pop up as you opened my mind for Kenya and Africa for which I am eternally grateful.
Hans Carl Jacobsen
