Maryam Mohammed

Project idea

The topic of the study is the rehabilitation and completion of an unused amphitheater in the La Termitiere complex in the center of the capital of Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou.

Project description

The current condition of the amphitheater did not allow the dance and drama school to use these spaces properly, therefore two main buildings are added . The first is building is Labo. The second is the show, and it represents knowledge in my design due to the art work, exhibition of the culture all the way till they get to the theater which will be the light for creativity. Both of the forms are connected to the theater which makes the spaces between them shaded and pleasing for a brake to the audience.

Technical information

Each pattern in Burkina Faso reflects something,In the culture the patterns of black and white on their masks to represent ignorance and knowledge.
it often speak of the "light of knowledge" and the "dark shadow of Ignorance.“. Which is reflected in my design as a concept.
In the show area, the knowledge is reflected through the exhibitions that are showed in the interior renders as a path till a visitor reaches the amphitheater.
