AFRICAN ARCHITECTURE STYLE / SOPIARCHITECTS/ ZAOULI BUILDING

Project directors: Sopi Michel and Sopi Nichet
Artistic Director: Lobognon Ahipeaud

Project for Congo

African architecture has been more or less seen and designated internationally as being primitive. This constitutes a social problem! This ‘primitivity’ stems in part, from the building materials and their relatively low technological uses compared to modern western (architectural) construction techniques which culminate in skyscrapers. I submit here that African architecture has its rich and unique quality, rhythm, cultural affinity, among others. For this project, I integrated african concept of life on technological infrastructure. AMAZING RESULT.!!!!!!
