The Musgum houses in Cameroon are made from compressed sun-dried mud. Their dome shape are very close to the catenary arch, the ideal mathematical form for maximum rigidity with a minimum of material.   As well as being decorative, the raised pattern on the outside wall contribute to the drainage of rain and access to the top of the building for regular maintenance of the coating.
