The University of Djenne by ThanyTony The University of Djenne by ThanyTony
More trying out the scenery drawing here.
This time I present to you, The University of Djene in the Strike Witches Universe, the structure of the building is based on the Great Mosque of Djenne, but turned into an university as Islam doesn't exist in the SW universe, it's an amalgamation of the Great Mosque of Djenne and the University of Sankore, one of the greatest examples of the Sudano-Sahelian Architecture, being white and black reflecting the Volta Bassin Style, this being a Mossi Nation after all, makes sense their structures reflected this style, it's also a functioning university since its creation, being constantly kept and taken care of, polished over the years to endure the test of time.

Located in the Kingdom of Ouedraogo (A Mossi Empire in Western Africa composed of pretty much the entirety of Western Africa with its capital set in real life's Burkina Fasso), built in the 13th century by the Keita Dynasty which ruled in the Kingdom of Ouedraogo, a golden age period in African history where the Kingdom amassed a great deal of wealth and culture resulting in becoming one of the most powerful nations in Africa. in this era the dynasty built several education centers across the country to enlighten the populatiin, one of these being the University of Djenne, which was (And still is) a center of education with people from all corners of the Old World coming here to educate themselves in the history of African Nations and the exploits of the Roman Expedition into African continent lef by the legendary witch, Georgia of Lyda, these ancient records are stored within the walls of the university.

Over the years the university built a partnerships with other educational institutions and nations, currently it has partnerships with the nations of Gallia, The United States of Liberion, The Kingdom of Egypt, The Empire of Karlsland, The Great Mongolian Empire and The Fuso Empire, creating a network of exchange of documents and students to spread the history of African nations across the world.

I definetely feel like making more of these to flesh out the SW universe a little bit more, Enjoy!

Thanks n_n
I got this idea of making landmarks in the SW universe and I am really enjoying it, the idea is pick up places that would be COMPLETELY Different in the SW, it's easy with ruins of ancient civilizations because said civilizations still exist in the SW un some capacity.

Any idea of what I could try next? I am open to suggestions n_n

I'm not sure i really have any suggestions off the top of my head... haha

I do think it would be cool if someone created detailed floorplan layouts for all of the JFW air bases, but that's a whole nother project in itself and probably more than a one-person job to complete. Sadly there's not a lot detail on all the bases, but I guess that leaves room for imagination.

Now that you mention that, I've always had this theory about the base in Pescara, have you noticed it has some ruins in it? And with episode 9 showing all those hiden things?
I've always imagined that Island was probably a roman villa or a shrine, possibly created for their witches to inhabit and even train for the Empire.
But as time progressed the base kept expanding, probably turned into a Keep during the middle Ages and the reinasance (Would explain the main building) and finally a military base (which would add the docks and the runways) until it finally was assigned to the Strike Witches to settle.

I could make an image explaining this into bigger details.
