The project program consists of several building ensembles, outdoor facilities and gardens. The project aims to
turn the tide of environmental degradation, rehabilitate damaged eco-systems and ensure sustainable use of
natural resources, by serving as an example of proper environmental management for the Horn of Africa region.
It envisages enabling the study of nature, promotion of sustainable use of biodiversity resources and
demonstration of appropriate environmental technologies.
Architecture is seen here as an element of the landscape growing to provide shelter, the design approach
wants to be bioclimatic and based on an extensive use of local materials with a low embodied energy.
Alluding to organic geometry and primordial building traditions, the different parts of the program are organized
underneath the generous roof with different degrees of enclosure depending on the activity sheltered and the
degree of accessibility to the public but with maximum openness and maximum security.
Paths, Paved areas and Buildings lines traced in harmony with the nature of the landscape, defining the
meeting place – Mengenagna – punctuated by a “Meeting Tree” (arbre à palabres).
