Abstract
Architecture for Black Africans would ask, “How can I live with my brother?”. How to live in peace and harmony with the other people with whom we share our African continent? It is architecture created by activities of Black African people. Fostering unity and friendship, reflecting the concept of 'ubuntu' [spirit of sharing]. Places and linkages are created by this architecture for the building of the African family and community. Freed from destructive ego of individualism, but enslaved to selfless life-giving service to Black African people’s needs. This is architecture that constructs a stage, where Black Africans may perform their activities. In so doing, it enables them to rise to their greatness.
