Our project for the cultural center in the city of Sedhiou aims to create a space in which cultures can be handed down and disseminated. The goal is to devise a sustainable architecture that promotes the teaching and conservation of traditions through the use of materials found in the areas surrounding the area taken into consideration. An architecture that must be socially and economically sustainable, given the use of the various activities that take place in the region, such as agriculture and crafts. In the Sedhiou region there are many varieties of tree species used for the production of building materials; the processing of fabrics is also important, through techniques handed down for centuries. Our project develops longitudinally along the lot, where we have worked by adding and subtracting volumes. Addition as regards the four volumes with the functions of the buildings while subtracting for the preparation of external spaces such as gardens and gardens. Above these volumes we went to insert a large wooden structure. The covered area is 518 square meters while the open space is 397.7 square meters. In the four interiors we have designed exhibition spaces, small offices, toilets and spaces where the traditions and culture of the place are handed down and learned. Outside four excavations characterize the space around with plantations of fruit trees and the reuse of materials such as wood for furnishings.
