From a lecture on #African #Architecture... "One is impressed above all by the symbolic imagery of traditional African building. Using mud may have certain technical disadvantages, but it is probably the most expressive of all materials. It not only lends itself brilliantly to surface decoration, but the very shapes of the buildings express their functions and their ideology." Shown here is a beautifully decorated house facade in Zaria, Nigeria.
