Gursum Mosque + Mana Barumsa (School)
Status: In progress
Gursum mosque + mana barumsa (school) is a project that was funded by Ali Birra a legendary Oromo singer, songwriter, composer, and poet.
To promote sustainability and low-cost maintenance it was important to retain as much of the existing buildings. We were inspired by local vernacular architecture where rammed earth was the main building material.
