CEFOD Documentation Center
Ndjamena, Chad
A 150-seat reading room built as an extension to the existing library. The project was designed to provide agreeable indoor temperatures without the use of artificial climate-control systems by using high thermal inertia materials for the walls (non-compacted earth bricks) and a roof covering separated from the building by an important ventilation space.
