The choice of materials must be compatible with the local possibilities in terms of retrieval and economy. The master plan shows the quarries where to find some of the essential materials. Furthermore, the Committee provides the material specimens. Each material constitutes a important element of identification and recognition, such as is illustrated by the use of shells as inert for the concrete. A key requirement, however, is the accessibility to the resource by the beneficiaries of the project. The local building traditions provide design elements useful to the development of architectural projects that have to be contextualised and achievable in self. The design teams are invited to design thinking to using mainly natural materials and / or at least compatible with local ones, and with the design of the place metodologies. Also it is important to seek possible combinations of cheap materials that can be also used by unspecialized workers.

Designers are invited to reflect on the reuse of waste materials (such as tires, bottles, bags) that today create open dumps and, thanks to their easy retrieval, may be an additional resource to enhance and re-use for design purposes.

The mangrove landscapes characterize the entire basin of Casamance. There are two types of mangroves: the Rhinochera and Aviocenna. The latter, which better resists the salinity, is slowly replacing the first. Since the area is affected by drought, resulting in increased salinity, about 60% of the area of ​​mangroves disappeared, causing serious problems for the population. Mangroves in fact constitute an important resource for energy and for health, but especially for the local economy as they are essential for the craft and for the oyster. Mangroves are an important ecosystem for the survive of the fauna but also an essential element for the consolidation of dunes and riverbanks.
