Architectural history of a Zulu Hut. How it is build and why it is a beehive shape, materials used.Customs?Posted by: beehive in Homework Help
I want to know why Zulus build their houses – huts the way they did. What does the beehive shape mean, what material did they use and why. The shape changed at some point, when and why did that happen. Does the door openings of these huts all show in certain direction? Is there any windows in the huts. Is there a door. What materials did they use for the floors. Was there rooms in the hut,or was it just one open space, sleep and eat area in one.What is the traditions around these hut building, do the men or women do it, or both? And who do what. Is there any meaning in the fact that the hut is beehive shape, or is it for reasons like comfort, or is it spiritual. How big are these huts, how high are they, how big or high is the door of a hut. Is it waterproof, how do they keep warm, how do they seal it, if they do. What is the history regarding the Zulu hut. What is the architectual aspects of a Zulu hut. Where does it come from, how long ago. All the interesting bits also please.
