Sipopo Convention Centre
This original and very modern building was nominated for several architecture prizes.
A modern building among the trees.
This building, located along the coast of Malabo, is one of the new 21st century symbols of Equatorial Guinea. Built in 2011, it covers an area of almost 110,000 square feet and is surrounded by vegetation. Its modern design earned the Turkish firm Tabanlioglu Architects a nomination to one of the prizes of the World Architecture Festival that same year. The innovative building is surrounded by a gigantic bronze metal casing in the form of a mesh, which acts as a protective shield against the sun. In addition, its glass walls reflect the blue sea and the surrounding greenery, creating a spectacular palette of colours. Inside, one of the highlights is the restaurant with its magnificent views of the ocean.
