Patrick Schweitzer & Associés Architectes as Architects

The agency responded to the international tender launched in March 2012 by the government of Rwanda for the design of a new school of architecture. This school, with a capacity of 600 students, is located on a surface of 5,600 m² not far from the existing faculty.


For this project we are in favor of a simple volume on two levels which we have deformed as tectonics deforms the masses: on a tire on the opposite sides and a central fault is created, it is the space of the external life of the students . The first level is then cut out forming separate volumes of external circulation which is extruded into irregular pyramids in which the project workshops will be located.
