Abstract

Architecture and anthropology sit in differing worlds, have different vernaculars and examine different aspects of the material and immaterial. Yet, culture is as inextricably connected to architecture as a whole, as whole architecture is
connected to culture.

However, study between disciplines in South Africa is problematic. So I went overseas where the academic northern hemisphere relies largely on the study of underdeveloped nations, which rarely benefit from this examination of the ‘other’, subsuming themselves into a new colonialism that retains their economy, with their academic elites claiming the status of ‘expert’ in a briefly studied field. This is my story.
