The project consists of the construction of a bridge dam that aims to desalinate the valley of Tanaf, Senegal. Today, it is flooded with tides of Atlantic Ocean that destroy the cultivable fields and contaminate the aquifers, causing one of the highest rates of malnutrition and sub-Saharan disease, as well as determining poverty due to the lack of agricultural activity.

This is the project for a cultural centre in Tanaff village, at the extreme south of Senegal, by Italian architect Raoul Vecchio, who uses only natural and local materials, to enhance the resources of the territory and preserve the environment.

The project aims to create a symbolic architecture that uses only local materials and simple yet innovative technologies, so as to create teaching and development opportunities also on site.
