About UNESCO Kabul

In 2014, UNESCO organized an international competition for the Design of a Cultural Centre in Bamiyan

The site reserved by the Ministry of Information and Culture of the Afghan Government for the
construction of the Centre consists of 5 hectares of ground located on Chawni Hill, near the Police
Station. The slope of the site faces the cliff of the Buddhas to the North-west.
The program for the Centre, as detailed in the competition brief, comprised Exhibition Halls, an
Auditorium, a Tea-room and Shop open to the public, a series of Workshops and Classrooms destined for

(Offices and Meeting Room).
The construction of 2 of these three buildings is currently underway; the Public Building with the
exhibitions halls and the auditorium, and the Educational Building consisting of workshops.
