Project idea

Our project philosophy is to save energy, reduce emissions and save water in order to cope with the shortage of rainfall in Ethiopia during the dry season.

Project description

We collected climate data from Ethiopia and learned that October to February is its dry season. To solve this problem, we proposed that the embassy designed should save energy, reduce emissions and save water, and designed a reservoir for water reuse. Then, according to the general level, the positions of the embassy blocks were determined and the plane was refined. On this basis, we began to design the facade, combining the shape with Czech style: there is a characteristic roof, the facade is corrugated, and there are round holes in the grille to facilitate the ventilation of the house.
