Djenné: African City of Mud
 
   
Start Date 03/03/2010
 
End Date 28/04/2010
 
Location London 
 
Country United Kingdom 
 
Description The architecture of Djenné, an island town in the heart of West Africa’s Inland Niger Delta, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and considered the best example of traditional mud building. Masons have adapted traditional knowledge, building craft and magic to a modern, changing world.

This exhibition explores the fascinating relationship between design and construction practices, architectural heritage and cultural identity. A talks programme at SOAS and the Ismaili Centre accompanies the exhibition.

Supported by the School of Oriental & African Studies (SOAS), Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
