Ministry of Land, Water and the Environment, Asmara

Government Building, AsmaraFor a few short years at the end of the 1930s, perhaps lasting through the Second World War, this incredible Modernist building was, according to Denison, Yu Ren and Gebremedhim in Asmara, Africa's Secret Modernist City, the most exclusive brothel for Italian officers. At that time is also housed a bar and casino.

Today it is the office of the Ministry of Land, Water and the Environment.
