missedinhistory:

Not long ago, we talked about the Treaty of Waitangi, which founded New Zealand as a nation and, in many ways, was a big step forward in relationships between indigenous peoples and the British government. It wasn’t perfect, and (as we’re talking about in subsequent listener mail segments, including today’s) a lot of what happened afterward was not in the original spirit in of the treaty.

Today’s episode took place after the Treaty of Waitangi in history – but it’s nearly the opposite in terms of colonial/indigenous relations. The British took a particularly ham-fisted and disrespectful approach toward the Asante people in what is now Ghana. The final war in a century of conflict between the British and the Asante was led by a woman – the Queen Mother Yaa Asantewaa.

Here’s a link to our notes and research.

The concept is bizarre, combining a building material from the time of Julius Caesar with a Jetsons aesthetic, but the approach has already worked before.

This newly-revived technique could provide low-cost housing for refugees and displaced people, and generally provide architects with a cost-effective way to explore convex construction.
