这座图书馆将于2012年完工,这也是Gando学校扩建工程的最后一个项目。它对我们来说是一项很重要的任务,因为这里为人们提供了受教育的机会,甚至包括校园之外的人们。

富于韵律的桉树木材立面环绕着图书馆,营造出一个平静而开放的空间,学生在这里可以隔绝一切喧嚣,专心地学习和放松。在Gando这是第一次使用桉树木材来建设房屋。在布基纳法索,桉树通常被用作柴火,因为它能使土壤干燥,而且产量很少。

屋顶构造也代表了一种技术创新:传统的陶罐第一次用在天花板中,以确保在去掉它们之后光线与空气都能自如流通。最后,家具都被统一安装在构造中:譬如,一张大桌子被固定在主要房间的中央。

The library will be finished in 2012and completes the school extension in Gando. This library represents for us an important accomplishment since it allows access to education even to people beyond the school.

The eucalyptus rhythmicalfacade around the library creates a calm and open space in which pupils can isolate themselves to learn and to relax. It is the first time in Gando that eucalyptus wood is used for construction. In Burkina Faso, eucalyptus is usually used as firewood material since it dries out the soil and can only offer a small shadow.

The roof construction also represents a technical innovation: for the first time, traditional clay pots were used in the ceiling to insure, after their removal, light and air to circulate. Finally, furniture was integrated in the construction: per example, a big table was fixed in the center of the main room.
