BJ Parliament


The "Palais des Congrès" of this West African state was built in 2003. The People’s Republic of China funded 80% of the 25-million-dollar building. A large arched figure with three truncated cones, it cites the traditional castle-like houses of the Somba people that once protected inhabitants from wild animals and potential attackers.
