Malawi Rural Church

Inspiration for the project was found within the community. The villagers use circular enclosures to protect young plants. This was used as an analogy for the new building; it should act as a protective space, allowing for persons to grow into something bigger and stronger. The same inspiration was drawn from bird cages.

Inspiration was also drawn from the existing church. Although the building is in a bad condition (for its current use), it still retained a sense of sacredness through its natural lighting conditions. Further more the African drum also served as a motivator for design. The drum is often used for communal and religious purposes. Within the community circular shapes are mostly associated with a sense of protection & safeguarding. This analogy was taken into consideration, as the new church / town-hall should also communicate this idea.
