Africa Phase 4

The animal holding buildings were originally constructed of masonry, leading to many issues. The walls sweat and began deteriorating due to animal urination and exposure to the elements. Tilt-up sandwich panels were purposed as a solution to the structural issues. The panels alleviated the sweating and were much easier to clean.

The exterior wythe was covered with colored concrete to better blend into the background, and foliage was used to further disguise the tilt-up structures.
