Women in Business : ID+EA, an architectural firm set up by the brilliant Fatiya Diene Mazza

Settled down in Senegal (Dakar), the architectural firm ID+EA set up by the Senegalese entrepreneur Fatiya Diene Mazza already enforced many projects in Senegal: The Institute of Art Activities of Diamniadio (2020), the Prestige Agency NSIA Bank in Dakar (2019), the ACB Building in Dakar (2020) or even the AS Villa in Thiès (2021).

The last achievement of ID+EA (innovative design engineered architecture) is the conception and realization of the Diamniadio train station and its TER (Train Express Régional in French) which is supposed to make it easier for people and travelers who want to go from Dakar downtown to the International Airport Blaise Diagne in less than 30 minutes. Another way to tackle traffic jam and spend less time on the road in a capital city that suffers from permanent bottling. The Diamniadio train station was inaugurated on December 27, 2021.

ID+EA opened the Dakar office in 2015. Fatiya Diene Mazza studied in Boston and successfully obtained her master, before working in San Francisco for HOK in the team of infrastructures and airports. She would go back to Senegal afterwards, with a bunch of new projects to implement.
