Tambacounda Hospital is among ICON’s ten best buildings of 2021
Dec 16, 2021

Completed earlier this year, Manuel Herz’s redesign of Tambacounda Hospital’s pediatric and maternity units is catching the eye of the architectural press. The project has received a number of honors already, including being listed as one of the year’s ten best buildings by ICON magazine; winning an award from the German prize, Materialpreis, for its innovations with bricks; and being a runner-up for the prestigious Zumtobel Group Award – Innovations for Sustainability and Humanity in the Built Environment.

Congratulations are due to Manuel Herz, contractor Magueye Ba, and all the staff and partners who helped create this magnificent building that will transform maternal and pediatric healthcare in Tambacounda.

Plans are underway to build new housing at the hospital for doctors, which will improve staff retention and quality of life. If you would like to help with this effort, we hope you will join us.
