This simply style continues to survive today, but with the arrival of the
Europeans the building materials and techniques have been altered in these
houses to last longer. The Europeans also introduced new styles and structures,
such as churches and schools.
With colonization, the architecture in Fiji changed significantly,
but only in some areas. As the British urbanized,
they only brought their architecture to the growing cities in Fiji. Today there
exist a number of buildings in the British styles popular at the time, including
the Victorian Style. These structures can be seen in churches, houses, and other
buildings, most particularly in Suva.
The Indians also brought new styles to the country, most notably in the form of
Hindu temples and Islamic Mosques. These religious structures are commonly found
in areas dominated by ethnic Indians, primarily in urban centers.
