You know what , truth be told, that my sch, had my bsc 13 years ago, this is what you get , when true dynamic person is in charge. He deserves all the accolades. I enjoyed all fellow Esan sons and daughters to embrace Him. This is what fellow VC of esan extraction could not do.

Wowwowowowowowow. I honestly can’t believe this. I need to drive down to see for myself. Back then, the only storey building were the library and faculty of law, geography, NLT and ETF buildings.. other faculties then were like passage houses.
Now I’m proud...I never step foot in that town since 2009 when I graduated cos d town too go rugged but with all this, I commend the new management.. kudos. Still can’t believe faculty of Management science would have such look. Damn

A whole university in Nigeria can't even compare to a high school in the US.

High schools here can boast of complete libraries with free wifi, swimming pools,gym with basketball courts, health center. Etc.

No fans as all the classes are air conditioned with no more than 35 per class.

The basics of architecture is not copying and plagarism afterall every new design looks similar to something already done

The reason why most nigerian buildings always looks one sided is because of the need for air, humidity and the energy need of such building.

No nigerian Architect would ever build a bathroom without a window even if you tell him it doesnt need one as a ventilator can perform the same functions. He will bring up the power issue and the cost issue straightforward

That being said, there is still more work and more things to do than to just build chalets or 2 storey building all the where and call it a university.

Overall i think the cost issue is why Nigerian buildings always look the same tho.
Very few engineers in nigeria like the idea of a central controlled ventilation system for the above said reasons

Foreign buildings are not special, the way they look special is that they artificially create all the things a public building will need on one spot in one space. By the time this Foreign building is finished, hundred percent it will just look better and aesthetically pleasing

Hope this helps

I mentioned plagiarism as a point of reference for modern architecture in an African context and not necessarily because its "wrong" to be influenced by previous designs.

For example, having Corinthian style columns and arches or gothic style like Oxford University in the hope of looking more "sophisticated" may look "nicer" but would still be very insincere, wouldnt it?

Because Oxford university was built in the style reigning in Europe during the Middle Ages. So it doesnt have any meaning in post-colonial Nigeria. Yet people always complain that our buildings are ugly, plain, boring, etc

So my question was what exactly would make them look better or more interesting? What influences and contexts do we have or where do we draw our inspiration from, moving forward?

The issue of centralised energy systems or illogical ergonomics wasnt really my concern but the aesthetic aspect, which I notice always comes up every time somebody posts pictures of a new building. Air or humidity cant be it because there are nice buildings in hot countries all over the world. Though you also mentioned cost; maybe...

The problem is that we seem to be perpetually uninspired and parochial when it comes to art. Which is crazy! We come from some of the most creative cultural backgrounds in history.

Anyway, I get your point, thanks

It will be suicidal for any nigerian architect to try to use these styles of designs to build a house in nigeria. Like you said, these designs was what was reigning in Europe at the time in particular times of different centuries.

The stones and marbles and the mortar used back then arent available and its like looking for a needle in haystick anyone trying to find such in Africa.

Back not only builders built a building, there were sculptors, artisans who made had a unique part in the european styles at the time.

Also another interesting thing is that the climate and weather of these host countries made Oxford and cambridge buildings stand the test of time.
Water reacts a lot to limestone and mortar. if you brought any oxford building to nigeria in the same way and manner, after 100 years even way before that time, rain water mould may start to grow on the external surface for instance.

This is also seen in evidence as to One of the main reasons why nigerians buildings become very ugly as time and season pass by.

shut up the last skirmish happened Sept 2018. Was just some gentle men playing. Nothing happened since then. For over 10 years AAU has been as calm as Ice water. Yes lots of yahoo boys, not more. If you be cultist you hide am. Most schools are 100% worse than AAU. Uniport Delsu abraka or Uniben. Last month Cultist went on rampage at Uniben killing anything kill able more than 50 died. But if n.a. AUCHI poly or AAU, it will make headline. Update yourself mofo
