DESIGN IDEA
Unity is the core of any reconciliation process. It promotes human communication, and heals the wounds of war. The project of the Peace Pavilion of Sédhiou is designed to reflect this idea. 
A single roofing, made with woven straw on a bamboo structure, covers the entirety of the main spaces, and hugs them around a central space, where water is collected. The reasoning behind this Central space is to create life within the pavilion that allows human interaction, and to gather water in a central well, giving the space a collective character with high cultural value, in contrast to the darker, more sombre.
Contemplative space of Remembrance, which evokes the memory that the place holds through the ritual practices of the local community, and the people from all cultures visiting the pavilion. Set under the highest point of the roof, this space is full of a cold and dark atmosphere on the inside, with sea shells placed on the walls and floor. Sea shells play a prominent role in representing the transition from life to death in the Senegalese culture, and therefore emphasize the character and weight of the space.
The other main spaces are the Spreading Awareness area, which is dedicated to educate the visitors about the history of the conflict and the need for peace through seminars and conferences, and the Exhibition area, which will host artwork to reflect the pavilion’s values.




USE OF MATERIALS
The materials range from bamboo; woven straw; and plastic bags used for the roof, to laterite earth for the walls, as well as laterite stone and lime mortar for the continuous foundations bearing the walls.
Sea shells cover one of the walls of the contemplative space as well as a part of the floor.
Concrete is used to create a 5 cm slab that underlays the surface of the spaces.The central well and underground water lines that take the water gathered from the roof to the well are also made out of concrete.




CONSTRUCTION PROCESS
The construction process will start by digging the foundations which are strip footings that will support the laterite brick walls.The openings in the walls will then be created before moving to the roofing, which will be made by first laying a bamboo structure strapped to the walls and the floor with more bamboo pieces fixed together with ropes or lianas.
On top of the bamboo structure of the roof, a double-layer of straw will be laid, with a layer of plastic inside of the straw to keep the construction water-resistant.
ESTIMATE OF COSTS
The total estimated cost is 12668 Euros.The details of the cost are €4205 total for the roofing: 2 layers of straw for €2270, bamboo for €1629, and plastic for €306. The laterite earth walls are estimated at €5160, and the foundations at €1958 (lime and laterite stone). The concrete slab is estimated at €900:cement for €821, gravel for €67, and sand for €10.13. The well and water lines are estimated at €400, and 200kg of Sea shells for €45.
