African Structures

Similarly, when we are looking at African buildings, we’re also looking at thatched roofs and paint patterns, along with other embellishments that are distinct to the continent. One of our biggest sources of African art is from the Maasai tribe. But we really can’t build these shelters with cattle skin or stick walls. Mud bricks are more common in South and West African building techniques. The appearance of mud, an overall more rounded appearance, and paint, would be what we’d be looking to do in order to represent Sub-Saharan Africa. This style of structure is called a rondavel.
