GREEN BUILDING

Abidjan, Ivory Coast

Green Building, Abidjan, Ivory Coast

Design: Alexandre Rotier

____________

 

Building yes, but let’s green

 

The beauty of nature reminds man of his relationship with the earth.

We owe it to ourselves to refocus on this link with nature,

in order to reconnect with it in a more conscious way.

 

This approach also brings us back to an awareness of isolation,

depollution, filtration and maintenance of biodiversity.

 

We are here in the humanization of space, in a spirit of inspiration from nature,

whether through form and architecture, colors, textures, or scent.

Support by play of shadow and light

thus allowing to be in perfect symbiosis with a whole.

____________

 

“Dreaming of dreams”

 

This inscription would not be complete without a reminder

of a foretaste of paradise through the art of Africa.

Our history, our inscription in this place to nourish this present.

____________

This high-end architectural visualization was conditioned by its location.

In Abidjan, capital of Ivory Coast, temperatures are high and constant throughout the year.

The climate is tropical.

Moreover, Abidjan is built on the edge of the Ébrié lagoon,

with several adjacent peninsulas and islands connected by bridges.

It is also a port city, connected to the Gulf of Guinea.

Abidjan is as well the most important commercial and financial center of Ivory Coast.

It has modern infrastructure, tall skyscrapers and a thriving industry.

These three aspects – climate, water and economy – shaped in our imagination

what would later become Green Building.

A creation that would unite the primitive African spirit, which beats like a warm heart behind the skin of this country,

the veneration for water, and the growing development and internationalization of Ivory Coast.

____________

Green Building aims to convey these meanings with its visual language.

The visitor walks along its rooftop with water and lets his eyes glide over the profusion of vegetation on the façade.

And this passerby should feel, even if he is not aware of it, that Abidjan is walking a path towards the future,

without turning his back on its past.

____________

If you vibrate with this African art turned into a building,

we recommend you to visit Student Housing.
