Why can't we have this kind of unique buildings in Nigeria. All we have are gay and boring buildings. Do we even get the services of Architects in this country?

Just look at the pictures and move on, it does not have to affect the price of anything before someone decides to post it.

fellis: The Korowai House


This is just one example of the typical dwelling used by the Korowai tribe of New Guinea, who had no idea the outside world even existed until 1970. The Korowai build their tree houses up to 165 feet in the air. They do this to avoid predators, floods and ant swarms.

y na the house wey them build for africa come different .... it shows our lack of initiative and innovation and the inability to subdue our environment.
