The Czech Embassy complex in Addis Ababa will be a business card of the Czech Republic. Its mission will be primarily to express the cultural level of the state and the traditions of Czech architecture within the European and the world context of cultural heritage. It will be a place where foreigners can learn basic information about the history of the Czech Republic, culture and economy. In its own form and content, the embassy complex should express an adequate level of state representation, reflect the genius loci (the environment and the conditions of the site), all this together with meeting at the same time the requirement for functionality and purposefulness. The prerequisites for the architectural design are its expressive timelessness, high quality of execution, rational layout and the choice and use of adequate materials while sticking to the typological attributes of purpose-built buildings (offices and residences) for diplomatic missions.
