Ethiopia: Foreign Ministry to Get New Headquarters

Quote:
Addis Fortune (Addis Ababa)
16 September 2008 <-- very old article, originally included design pictures


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) is to construct an eight-storey building on the 500Sqm plot behind the current headquarters located off Menelik Avenue. The Ministry also intends to construct a conference hall with a capacity to seat 250 -300 people. Expenditure for the erection of these structures - to be managed by the Ministry of Works and Urban Development (MoWUD) using low-cost construction materials - is expected to be 16 million Br.

"The building is designed in a manner that reflects Ethiopian architectural masterpieces, like the Rock-Hewn Churches of Lalibela, the Axum Obelisks, the wall of Harar town and the Castle of Fassiladas," Hailemeskel Teferra, head of Government Buildings Construction Project Office with MoWUD told Fortune.

This article from Addis Fortune had renderings with it but it isnt accessible from the Addis Fortune website anymore, if someone could find it that'd be great.
