The creation of the suburbs in the region of Dakar as in many other african territories, strongly involves the urban arrangment of the City and the network itself. The economic opportunities the System can provide to the Citizens, gets strongly affected by the historical landing of the French colonialism which drove the senegalese region toward political disfunctins and social negative impacts. Considering the constructions obtained by the settlement, the arrangement appears to be over characterized by Residential buildings which represent the main Destination use of the area itself and does not allow other Services enriching the Municipalities' need. For the inhabitants, this assimilation represents a current issue with which they have to face to till the present day caused by the past french intervention which have spread the basis for the contemporary Urban frame. For the young population which is generally the senegalese one, this scenario consists on delineating hard futures for the seekers of job and also do not properly offer positive outlines. Thanks to the collaboration between the Polytechnic of Turin and the Municipality of Pino Torinese, the suburb of Pikine East located in the Department of Pikine, gained the opportunity to interact with an European body for enriching its current situation and providing new solutions for the inhabitants. Concentrating the studies on the wider age range which is represented by the Young people, the development verts upon elaborating an architectural solution to the lack of utilities meant to offer reference points.
