Arusha Regional Library.

With the plot sloping down from Sokoine Road to the river, the building rises up from the lower slope, making the structure appear to be floating, or taking off from the ground. It is a very light structure, Jan explains. 'Here the Architect is playing with space'. With large windows in a straight line along all walls, the building possesses qualities of the Le Corbusier style, which support that a building should be like a plant in nature, with the rest of nature accessible from all angles.
