The Ethiopian Airlines Headquarters competition project was held in 2011 in collaboration with Soehne & Partner Architects based in Vienna, Austria. It was designed with a framing concept of ‘Flows and connection’ which explains the airlines’ business of transporting people and goods, connecting different destinations and culture globally. This was expressed with departmentalized rectilinear blocks connected with central spines which house floating bridges allowing spatial flow both to the internal and external landscape. The overall solution tries to respond to both international and local contextual elements. The final design of the building, which is 24,000 sq. meter, equipped with modern services and technologies, is under finalization.
