E.F-Architects as Architects

With the analysis of cultural and social layers, we extract a lot of notions.First symbol is the definition of the Senegal word, which is interpreted in wolof language “ our boat”, and it provides metaphors such as unity, parallelism and floating. The second symbol is baobab tree. the tree of life, symbolizing the hope and the six nations that make up the Casamance region. The third was the character of the Grivoet, a cultural symbol. A person who predominantly narrated the history of Africa by means of musical instruments. These three symbols were important to us, and eventually we sought to create a new symbol in relation to the concept of peace but through architecture.                   Senegal + baobab = senebab

Senebab means a boat containing a tree of life and hope, like a peace ambassador. The main concept we have from this pioneer is that this peace ambassador will deliver his message through a story, like a grivoet.The methods used to advance the project are biomorphic, regionalism, and contextualism.The hierarchy of the project has been shaped as a story;  it's a journey, and this journey is shaped like a narrative or story on this pavilion, just like the griot that narrates Africa's history.This story  has 3 chapters, each chapter being shown as a spatial sequence of the project. Each of these sequences is formed by analogy with the two previously mentioned symbols.(beobab tree & Senegal definition”our boat”)The first sequence, which is related to the past, shows the results of the war, and the result is loss of humanity and lack of them, such as a boat or tree that is alone and free from human beings. We filled the names of the dead people to create the sense of the absence on water under the project,
