Cameroun: Case à obus

02/06/2012

The Mousgoum is an ethnic group in far north province in Cameroon that creates their homes from compressed sun-dried mud. The tall conical dwellings, in the shape of a shell features geometric raised patterns.
The decorative surface allows for further refinement and individualization.
The veins are also contributing to the drainage of rain. The musgum houses require regular maintenance of the coating and the veins allow people to climb atop the building.
