The Czech Embassy complex in Addis Ababa acts as a Culture Link, while being also the business card of the Czech Republic. The project’s idea is to represent the linkage between the Republic and the Ethiopian “topos”, in all levels of its architectural expression. The total synthesis proposes a visible representation of a “whole” (one-piece) building responding to “genius loci” in a timelessness manner. While being an ambassador for Czech culture, embracing a simple and sophisticated European character, embodies local elements (i.e.: voids and semi-roofed spaces, atrium and materials). The Total Link concept proposes a distinctive character that will create a landmark for the area and the city. It also refers to the linkage of all building’s functional units and voids into one recognizable entity.
