Surface Textures

After looking into the construction of Adobe/mud huts i realize that surface texture on the structure plays an extremely important role in allowing the outer and inner layers of mud stick to the structure. Above i have made a compilation of both man made and natural textures that appeal to me and i feel would be beneficial to my concept. Although there are some man made textures above i hope to keep to natural textures as the use of nature and natural materials in African native architecture is extremely important to both the local environment and the customs and heritage that so many African tribes wish to hold onto.
