In December 2015, the International School of Dakar invited Flansburgh to design a new Performing Arts Complex and Athletics facility for their beautiful campus overlooking the Atlantic Ocean near the westernmost tip of Africa. The addition of this facility furthers ISD's strategic goals focused on fostering student arts involvement and nurturing student talents and passions.
Identification of program elements grew out of a master plan exercise Flansburgh completed, studying campus facilities and the school’s future growth. The addition of a 350-seat theatre, black box theatre, technical support areas, art gallery, and classrooms will create a new permanent home for the arts. New centralized athletics facilities will interface with the arts complex to provide community spaces accessible to the public in a district separate from the academic buildings.
