House to Watch the Sunset
Agadez, Niger
Located in an oasis, 'the house from which to watch the sunset' is built with the typical adobe bricks of the local building tradition. The house is formed by four independent cubic rooms stacked on top of one another, each reached by climbing a different flight of stairs taking off from the ground. 

It is one of a group of structures designed by the artist for Agadez, including a school and a mosque.
