Oba's Palace Parking Lot and Facade
Kathy Curnow

A large grassy parking lot used to stand in front of the palace, filled with vehicles during festival periods. Oba Ewuare II created a paved area to replace it, and, in place of the discontinuous facade of buildings, erected a new, pillared white structure and unified the other structures by painting them white as well. This was done in preparation for his October 2016 coronation.
