Globalization effects are reflecting today on communities, putting ancient rituals and the preservation of cultural identities down the risk. The town of Sedhiou has no places to let its own community spread its culture and habits, where to have the chance for everyone to relate and express themselves through arts.
The purpose of this project consists in creating an iconic building in order to preserve local cultures coming from the region of Sedhiou, voted to respect towards environment and local cultural balance existing in the area, improving uncertainty conditions of communities and aimed to preserve customs.
Sedhiou cultural center has been designed to be a second home having 9 units of identical shapes with different scales represent the different buildings, neighborhoods, classes, and lifestyles of the people.
