Contemporary architecture today has its roots from the vernacular.
All cultural groups in the world have their unique form of vernacular architecture though approaches vary from place to place and from people to people.
Many values can be found in vernacular architecture which is relevant to contemporary architecture today.
This book looks at vernacular architecture in Nigeria as practiced by two ethnic groups who have varying climatic, religious and socio-cultural practices.
The approaches to architecture by these two groups, i.e.
the Hausas and Igbos, are looked at with the intention of finding positive values in the vernacular which can be applied to contemporary architecture both within Nigeria and beyond.
