Blaise Pascal high school gymnasium by Koffi & Diabaté Architectes

At the behest of the Association gestionnaire de Blaise-Pascal (AGPB), the firm Koffi & Diabaté Architectes completed the Gymnasium of the Lycée Blaise Pascal in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, in 2017.

In an environment where the design methods of sports halls are too often modelled on those of temperate zones, the major challenge for this project was to propose a new approach. As a result, in contrast to closed and obscure halls, the building is open and lively. It is, therefore, better suited to the sports activities of the 1,500 students and at the same time allows for a certain amount of energy savings thanks to the use of passive solutions.
