International New Architecture Publication 10/2012

International New Architecture Magazine has published PARAVANT Architects' design for the Swiss Embassy in Yaoundé, Cameroun, in their October 2012 issue. The design is a unique dialectic pairing of a highly public and representational buil
ding with extraordinarily sensitive requirements concerning privacy and security. The design of the compound uses the courtyard building type to address the need for privacy and security while also expressing the vernacular thoughts towards space, light and air that is typical in this region.
