Competition Brief:
Kaira Looro aims to discover new talents and to discover sustainable architecture models for humanitarian purpose to improve life conditions in developing countries.
Narrative:
The objective of the competition was the creation of a “Women’s House” within a symbolic and environmentally friendly structure that would be inspired by local traditions. A space in which women will be able to discuss the topics of equality and human rights, guaranteeing involvement and emancipation of the female community in favor of the region’s social, economic, and political development.

Opportunities build strength. Opportunities for all imbibe equality. KATTAN meaning ‘strength’, aspires to be a space that becomes a transparent, seamless, and flexible platform for women to participate and strengthen. And strives to imbibe a sense of freedom and safety in the Women of Senegal and inculcate their political identity in the village. The house is an expression that becomes a platform that creates an image of the power the women hold, through the work they do at the “Women’s house”.

The open plan and play of levels and spaces will encourage interactive and collaborative thinking. Built with completely regional and sustainable materials, the space can be constructed by the women themselves, an edifice that they constructed would become a vibrant fort marking their political identity in the region, where they would educate, collaborate, and strengthen!
