Summary/Historical Context

From the famous Mousgoum shell-shaped huts, described by André Gide, to the artistically arranged leaves-covered pygmy dwellings, this architectural journey - shot in northern and southern Cameroon - shows us how diverse can be the styles among African houses. In the savannah or in the forest, in the mountain ranges or in the plains, chief's houses or simple dwellings, their architecture take their roots with the same strength in each ethnic reality.
