Universidade Eduardo Mondlane Rectorate, Maputo, Mozambique

The new Rectorate forms part of the first phase of the redevelopment of the campus in Maputo. The wing housing the Council Chamber, meeting rooms and other public facilities faces the bay, with dramatic views and will overlook the future campus entrance. Two connected, three story office wings and the east wing form a protected, sculptured courtyard. The offices accommodate the various administrative departments of the University, previously housed in buildings scattered across the city. The east wing contains foyer, art gallery, council chamber and meeting rooms. The project was undertaken in association with Carlos Borges Arquitectos and ACE Consulting Engineers, with campus planning support provided by Julian Elliot. Completion 2010.
