Site and Ecclesiastical Architecture in Akure, Nigeria: The Critical Nexus

Davies O. Akingbohungbe, Jubril A. Olanusi, Mayowa P. Ogunruku

Abstract: Site and architecture work together to build common theme, sense of place and setting. They mutually complement and enhance each other; thus promoting intended use and desired behaviours within the particular designed space. The emergence of Pentecostalism in Nigerian religious terrain resulted in multiplicity of worship centres across the nation?s human settlements with varying qualities of architectural environments. This paper takes a succinct look at the emerging architecture and bemoans the evident neglect of the potentials of positive setting in enhancing the goals of such centres. It puts forward appropriate professional and policy recommendations for better performance.
