Description:

Complex is a natural harbor for presidential meetings providing a serene and secure atmosphere, as in history, kings were crowned beneath the Baobab trees of Senegal. Housing the main conference hall, museum, restaurants, meeting facilities and VIP units, construction joins separate units connected via water and bridges. Union of separate blocks accentuate notions of community’s foundation-creation and harmony-order, in both social and environmental realms. Twisted blades forming the texture of mesh screen behaves like sun-break and grants a shady interior without hindering the accent of transparency. Three-dimensional effect of mesh curtain grants a floating expression over the surrounding reflection pool.
