Project idea

The concept cames from the popular expression "Feel at home". The research began to understand the customs and habits of the two countries, so that there is harmony and respect between the two cultures.

Project description

Free areas for activities and reading, wooded paths will be created with coverings at different heights to remind the mountains. The coverings have in their shape geometric patterns that are used as an expression of art in the fabrics and paintings of the Ethiopians. In free areas will be used pergolas, which by the use of wood and simple form reminds the house of the Ethiopian people, causing the two cultures to blend into the project.
