Emilio Caravatti Architetto / Italy ORATORIA A BOBO-DIOULASSO, BURKINA FASO, 2003 The project takes its point of departure in an existing chapel that had become too small for the congregation in Bobo-Dioulasso. As a result of the political situation and the civil war in the neighbouring country Ivory Coast, access to materials is greatly limited. The chapel is therefore built in materials that were available in the surroundings – red clay that has been moulded into bricks. The perforated walls function as climate screens which also create a play of shadows on the floor by the altar. 210  SPIRITUAL PLACES
