Fondation DonwahiCôte d’Ivoire


This structure dedicated to contemporary creation hosts exhibitions, artist residencies and cultural events. The Donwahi Foundation is made up of three villas whose clean, minimalist lines evoke the avant-garde aesthetics of the 70s. An architectural ensemble nestled in a vast green setting, worthy of a David Hockney painting. The foundation was created in 2008 as a tribute to Charles Bauza Donwahi (1926-1997), a former minister under Félix Houphouët-Boigny, and an enlightened patron and promoter of the arts and culture, which he saw as vehicles for sharing and tolerance.
