National Cathedral of Ghana

Greater Accra, Ghana

The main cathedral will house 5000 people with a further capacity for 10,000 more in the wings to the sides of the podium. The combination of its sheer scale, complex geometry and large spans adds to the engineering challenge of delivering a building in a seismic prone area, making it a unique project across Ghana’s emerging landscape.
