The overview traces how the habitat becomes a
cultural context for building, and how this context
offers resources for architectural concepts
and urban planning. And further, how such
concepts can be communicated efficiently to a
public, to developers, builders, and users.
The present changes in the Horn of Africa
presents Somalis for a huge new possibilities
for building. It relies on continuing peace, economic
growth, return of diasporas, urbanisation
and increasing recapture of a strong Somali
and Muslim self-awareness in a younger public
responding to urban life and its building. Today
building takes many shapes, as seen in the
abundance of projects everywhere in the Somali
Peninsula. But it is also highlights a serious
need for infrastructure, logistics, and planning,
roads, water, electricity, and sewerage, as well
as solutions to climate change.
