Detail of the extraordinary external spiral staircase on the Hotel Vallees des Princes, Douala, Cameroon, which to me manages to be both crudely executed yet exquisitely conceived. Truly a one-of-a-kind. See previous post for more on the building. Photo February 2019 Bauzeitgeist.
Boarded-up hotel, Boulevard de la Liberté, Akwa, Douala, Cameroon. Photo 2019 Bauzeitgeist.
Disused hotel, Rue de la Republique, Akwa, Douala, Cameroon. The cheap grey bathroom tiles look like one of those old SketchUp render surface patterns. Photo 2019 Bauzeitgeist.
