Lesotho Youth Center
The facility was designed as a combined football pitch and HIV/AIDS awareness center as part of the official campaign “20 Centres for 2010” of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The layout creates flexible spaces with open transitions that signify the crucial interrelationship between teaching, health, and sports. Classrooms and medical facilities enclose an inner garden with outdoor teaching areas, a playground, and a small football pitch. The structure adheres to local building tradition, with the use of red brick, clay, and wood.
The project is a collaboration with charity organisation Article 25. Illustrations by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter.
