Biovac Vaccine Laboratory In Ndabeni, Cape Town, South Africa



The Biovac vaccine laboratory in Ndabeni, Cape Town, is a place of serious science, but also of innovation and invention. The brief calls for a lab block with a small office component taking advantage of views west. The clinical QC laboratory has to comply with stringent international standards to accredit Biovac the right to manufacture and test Vaccines in SA. This marries my two interest'; science and archeture.

Mapungubwe Interpretation Centre - Mapungubwe - South Africa
World Building of the Year 2010


Mapungubwe, located on South Africa's northern border with Botswana and Zimbabwe, prospered between 1200 and 1300 AD by being one of the first places that produced gold, but after its fall it remained uninhabited for over 700 years, until it's discovery in 1933. The society living in what today is Unesco World Heritage Site, is thought to have been the most complex in the region, implementing the first class-based social system in southern Africa. And besides the cultural heritage, Mapungubwe is also home to an immensely rich flora and fauna, including over 1000 years old Baobab trees and a big variety of animal life, including elephant, giraffe, white rhino, antelopes and 400 bird species.

Terra Cotta-Colored High School in Senegal


Despite soaring summertime temperatures in Senegal, the gorgeous terracotta-colored Jean Mermoz High School only relies on mechanical air-conditioning two months out of the year. The Architect leaned on the expertise of local craftsmen to realize this striking contemporary design, which has a remarkably small energy load thanks to a series of passive design strategies .

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia: The Royal Netherlands Embassy



The Royal Netherlands Embassy complex lies amidst the urban sprawl on the southern outskirts of Addis Ababa, occupying a five-hectare steeply sloping site, enclosed within a dense eucalyptus grove. The guiding principle of this architectural collaboration between Ethiopian and Dutch designers was to preserve and respect the topography of the surrounding landscape while addressing the functional requirements of a working embassy. They took care to maintain existing contour lines and leave the vegetation and wildlife undisturbed.

Sipopo Congress Center: Malabo, Equatorial Guinea

In the Capital city Malabo of Equatorial Guinea, the SIPOPO Congress Center is situated by the ocean and surrounded by the woods.The rectangular two-storey block is nested in a semi-transparent metal envelop as a shield protecting from strong lights and create an implication of security, protecting the interiors from sharp sun beams yet benefiting the daylight at optimum.

The rectangular two-storey block is nested in a semi-transparent metal envelop as a shield protecting from strong lights and create an implication of security, protecting the interiors from sharp sun beams yet benefiting the daylight at optimum. The lacy texture of the mesh behaves like sun-break and grants a shady interior without hindering the accent of transparency. The building with its elegant veil visually merges to the ocean and the surrounding greenery in serenity, reflecting the beauty of the surroundings.

Butaro Hospital, Rwanda


The hospital is located on top of a steep hill overlooking Butaro's valleys that stretch out to the north towards the border with Uganda. A former army camp, the site first had to be made safe and cleared of grenades and other munitions.

In total, 3,898 people from the local community worked on the construction site. In this way they received manual training and were able to acquire new skills. The project was designed as a series of pavilions grouped around a garden, with all the wards and beds facing the surrounding landscape. The hospital consists of an emergency room, two operating theaters, a department of internal medicine, maternity, pediatric clinic for infants and an intensive care unit. The health center has more the feel of a resort than a hospital, anonymous and isolated.


"Architecture is a powerful profession that can have a lasting impact on societies."

Mali National Park’s sports center

The sports center is divided into three pavilions characterized by a large cantilevered roof.













Above the clay base, the most compact part of the building seems to belong to the land of which it is made; a large cantilevered roof made of simple sheet metal hovers lightly in the air. It is supported by a metal structure, a geometric pattern made with thin rods – the architectural equivalent of the branches of a tree, artificial branches, through which the wind blows to cool the interior.
