Mana, the socio-cultural facets and spatial morphology of Tangale domestic spaces
Maina, Joy (2013) Mana, the socio-cultural facets and spatial morphology of Tangale domestic spaces. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
An increase in population recorded in traditional Nigerian communities facing rapid urbanization created a demand for housing. This has necessitated research regarding the socio-cultural needs of different cultures in the country. This gap is most evident the North East region where little or no intense architectural studies have been carried out in part due to mountainous terrain. Furthermore, no culture specific studies have addressed the relationship between social problems such as insecurity, delinquency and slum environments with changes in lifestyle nor investigate the failure of prototype housing in some of these communities.
