Preserving the cornerstones of our cultures
Historical buildings stand as an irreplicable link between past and present but appreciation and preservation of these buildings varies greatly across the world. Many of Nigeria’s important heritage structures lie neglected, in danger of being lost altogether and their legacy with them. Our research is exploring the role of historic structures in maintaining cultural identity, and aiming to develop a theoretical framework to safeguard the historic buildings of South-South Nigeria.
