• Sacred Walls for Peace

    Light and water are defined as the two primary elements which sculpt a sacred space beyond all religious boundaries. The design is strongly inspired by passive vernacular architecture found in the Casamance, Senegal region. Rainwater collection has been a part of traditional architecture in the region as it is located in a tropical savanna climate zone. Sustainable materials such as thatch, bamboo, and compressed earth blocks(CEB) are produced and built with locally available vegetation, earth, and water.
