What once was
These soft ripples in the sand make up an image of great beauty and plasticity; a pattern that leads us to the realm of the abstract. inviting us to watch differently, to abandon the conventions and preconceived ideas.
Batammaliba (West Africa, primarily Togo & Benin) Architecture: “The north-south gender division within each house is reinforced by gender-related activites, rituals, and the placement of the deities’ shrines.
The second house division is the use of upstairs, female space and downstairs, male space.
Finally the house is divided into the front and outside, men part and into the back and interior, women part.
All three gender-associated divisions are explained through inversion that is seen to have a religious base. What becomes clear is that, in this spatial inversion, the house is defined primarily as a residence of the gods and deceased elders. Only secondarily, and through inversion, is the house identified with humans.”
