What is African architecture? The ArchiAfrika foundation aims to start the debate on African architecture and to spread knowledge on the architecture of the continent, in Africa and elsewhere.
 
Although the world keeps on getting smaller and the internet permits us to take a peek at the edges of the world, what first comes to mind remains more often than not unchanged: African architecture is traditional architecture, little round huts with thatched roofs in remote villages surrounded by wild elephants and giraffes. And yes indeed, this is African architecture. But there is so much more.

The ArchiAfrika website both available in English and French, supports ArchiAfrika's goals and tries to be a platform for all parties concerned with the topic.
