Contemporary Architecture by topetall(f): 4:07pm On May 16, 2010
Hello dear friends,
Am writing a research on influences of vernacular architecture on contemporary building practices in naija. I need case studies on buildings that have some vernacular or traditional elements in them.
Too often architects and planners are oblivious to the true nature and potential of African urbanism: clustered pavilions around open activity spaces; a responsiveness to climate and place; the simple, straightforward, honest use of materials and articulation of forms; a hierarchy of spaces, thresholds and circulation routes; subservience to, and respect for, the natural environment; a disregard for European Renaissance-like uniqueness; respect for neighbours, the fabric and custom; a quiet composition, and colours and textures that blend rather than compete.
For example, the natural history museum in OAU, Nigeria-still under construction and former oau cafetaria.
so please i need more case studies( in nigeria)
thank u
