The “Peace Pavilion” project in the city of Sedhiou aims to be a reference point for raising awareness among local and inter- national communities, a space in which to promote and foster peace, a structure that is contemplative and multifunctional, capable of providing the region with an identity through the values of memory and solidarity.
The challenge is to design an architecture that commemorates the countless lives lost in Africa’s wars and that gives material shape to the significance of peace, with respect for the environment and for local traditions. Contestants will have to convey this theme through a unique and striking design that also integrates itself within the context, creating a structure that is desti- ned to become a symbol of memory for the entire continent, capable of bringing humility and awareness to the landscape, both culturally and thematically.
