A wide range of submissions made use of sustainable materials and
highlighted the need for passive cooling, ventilation and natural lighting. The short listed designs showed a creative range of well thought out ideas.
The honourable mentions included teams from Russia, China, France and New Zealand
“Myself and the team were absolutely blown away with the work and talent that went into the designs for this competition. The girls and young women that this building will serve feel truly a part of something special with a wonderful feeling that there is an international community out there that really cares for them and this new centre. Although only one design could be chosen, the inspiration that myself and the team have drawn from each and every design will influence our work for many years to come. Aspects of all the submissions will be entwined in our work helping underprivileged women and children around the world. The designs have enriched our future plans and broadened our perspective of what is possible, the flair and intricacies in all the work submitted has really demonstrated how much more we could be doing with our construction projects.”
Quintin Clover - Founding Director of Kanallan,
“The challenge was a very difficult one for the jury with such a high level of design quality from so many entries. We are thrilled that we were able to engage the local team and end users with the selection and there is genuine excitement to see this project realised later this year. it has the potential to change lives in a positive way for generations to come”
David Cole Founding Partner of Building Trust international,
Building Trust international will be working closely with Kanallan and local partners to help deliver the winning design during 2021. Once realised this government approved proposal will deliver much needed services and has the chance to be a pilot for more centres of its kind, helping establish a more equitable community at a local and national level.
