Hi Abosila. I was wondering that if you were bringing mall culture to the regional market, I would have wanted to see the culture of the people integrated into its architecture. If I were coming from the city, I would like to make a trip to the countryside and see the local mall. But what would set it apart from a typical urban mall, so that it would entice me to go there and see it, redefining it into a new tourist attraction as well. If you can consider merging this with your current design, kindly expound this through your write-up for your project.
I am very excited for your project, and would love to see its fruition. Keep up the good work!
I'm humbled by your words of advice concerning this project. Ill work on all you've said. Thank you very much.
Ill try to infuse the modern mall into the local markets we have here in Nigeria such that it doesn't change our way/ culture of interacting with the goods.
the idea is to imbibe the traditional way of African markets into the modern form. African markets are village like and consumers prefer to interact with the good rather than look at it from afar. this project bridges the gap between western malls and African markets
Design of a REGIONAL MARKET that can take the traffic of people
and goods coming in form west Africa and Nigeria at once.
Bamboo as a material for building construction was assessed for its sustainability using data from secondary sources. It is a well-known fact that a sustainable material for building construction must be environmentally friendly, affordable, flexible in usage, and durable, which makes bamboo one because of these characteristics it possesses. Also, due to its rapid growth and adaptability to most climatic conditions as well as its properties and superiority to most rapidly growing plant in Nigeria, bamboo emerges as a sustainable material for building construction in Nigeria. Bamboo has numerous unique advantages like the ability to grow fast with a high yield, environmental friendliness, lightness in weight, and matures quickly for harvesting. Additionally, bamboo can be grown abundantly at a lower cost than other building materials, which makes it more economical.
