I never considered African architecture until I spent some time in West Africa. While I’ve always been a fan of the colorful Iberian styles of colonial architecture (about the only thing I like about colonialism!), when I actually got to Senegal and Mali, I was blown away by traditional African styles. I was particularly inspired by the ancient Dogon cliff dwellings and the mosques made of mud and dung with wood beams projecting outward.
Here’s a page which shows different examples of African architecture and reminds us that there is always more interesting things beyond the dominant narrative.
