The Senufo are known for their red adobe-like structures, especially the narrow, thatched roofed granaries, which are placed up on small legs. While some have wooden door near the top, many are simply accessed by tipping the roof to one side. Each granary is slightly different in proportion and gesture from its neighbor, and the groups of granaries in a village suggest a gathering of "cousins."
