J. Zhang, Z. L. Yusuf

Abstract

In this paper, the traditional Hausa Architecture (Tubali) a Vernacular Architecture common to Northern—Nigeria is taken as the research object. By visiting remaining buildings, conducting research and talking to local historians, we aim to outline the form, functions, construction materials, the unique Construction technology and more used in Hausa architecture. We hope that more people will understand this indigenous architecture and realize that it is disappearing, and based on this, suggestions are made for the improvement and contemporary development of the traditional architecture of Hausa.
