World Food Program Office Building
Bamako, Mali
Stairs lead from a landscaped patio to the roof terrace. On the northern and southern sides of the patio the rows of offices are arranged in a slightly staggered fashion, creating a variety of external volumes so as to maximize the amount of shade obtained. The same concern resulted in the construction of projecting arched elements around the doors and windows throughout the structures. The external finish displays two tinges of earth/ochre color.
