Decorated house facades in Zaria, Nigeria: Painted facades and mud relief, including a bicycle
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.

Double Decker living tree root bridge, Meghalaya, India The living bridges of Cherrapunji, India are made from the roots of the Ficus elastica tree.This tree produces a series of secondary roots from higher up its trunk and can comfortably perch atop huge boulders along the riverbanks, or even in the middle of the rivers themselves.
Deep in the rainforests of the Indian state of Meghalaya, bridges are not built, they’re grown. Ancient vines and roots of trees stretch horizontally across rivers and streams, creating a solid latticework structure strong enough to be used as a bridge. Ancient solution: The 'double decker' living tree root bridge in the village of Nongriat in Meghalaya, India. Locals have been using the bridges for over 500 years Ancient solution: The 'double decker' living tree root bridge in the village of Nongriat in Meghalaya, India. Locals have been using the bridges for over 500 years Some of the bridges are over a hundred feet long and can support the weight of fifty or more people.

The Cherrapunji region is one of the wettest places in the world with many fast-flowing rivers and streams, making these bridges invaluable to those who live in the region. Since the area receives around 15 metres of rain every year, a normal wooden bridge would quickly rot. But because the growing bridges are alive and still growing, they actually gain strength over time. For more than 500 years locals have guided roots and vines from the native Ficus Elastica (rubber tree) across rivers, using hollowed out trees to create root guidance systems. When they roots and vines reach the opposite bank they are allowed to take root. In time, a sturdy living bridge is produced. Some can take ten to fifteen years to become fully functional.
