Ethiopia is a country with more than eighty ethnic groups living together harmoniously; the Oromos are the largest among this. The Oromo Cultural Center Complex is a project we got after winning the first prize, on a design competition. It houses different functions that foster the rich cultural and traditional values of the Oromo people.
The main concept of the design was to have a central spacious circular plaza that acts as an organizing element of the different functions. This plaza is further articulated by water features, greens and sculptures so that it is going to be an everyday socializing space for the tenants.
