Higher Institute for Technical Studies
Houmt Souk, Tunisia
The institute offers training in hotel management and maintenance in an area where tourism is of vital economic importance. In addition to teaching facilities, it contains administrative offices and a 300-seat amphitheatre. The form of the main building references the traditional Djerba house (the 'menzel'), which is generally a pure, simple cube. Local materials -- stone, brick and wood -- are combined with a reinforced-concrete structure.
