Another shot from central Windhoek. I have visited this site several times to try and get a balanced shot as the light is quite tricky. Quite a bit of PP work was done to deal with the wide dynamic range.
This is the Franco-Namibian Cultural Centre created in 1991 by an agreement between the Governments of France and Namibia. In 2000, it moved to its current permanent location, a newly-constructed building financed by the French government and representing one of the most original and outstanding architectural landmarks of the Namibian capital . Namibian architect Jaco Wasserfall and French architect Charles Delamy won an architectural competition and their design now graces the site assigned to the FNCC by the Namibian Government.

As you can see the corrugated steel gates have been painted by local artists, a true amalgamation between Europe and Africa, traditional and modern
