"Call for Artists, Designers, Architects: Who's Got Balls? Project Siyathemba"
2004-06-21 until 2004-09-01
Architecture for Humanity
New York, NY, USA United States of America

In many parts of Africa sporting activities, in particular soccer/football, are being incorporated into a variety of programs geared towards helping youth to address a broad range of issues affecting their lives. The "team" approach is especially important if countries are to successfully meet and overcome their current challenges, from poverty to HIV/AIDS, and from malnutrition to educational access. This summer we are challenging the creative world to design a football facility in Somkhele, Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa (Hi-Res Image 5MB). This facility, run by medical professionals from the Africa Center for Health and Population Studies, will serve as a gathering place for youth between the ages of 9 and 14 including home to the first-ever girls football league in the area. The pitch will also act as a tool to disseminate information on HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment and eventually a service point for a mobile health care clinic.

This facility is to be built with sustainable and/or local material and will include a fullsize field, sideline benches and a small changing room. The entire facility should be built for less than US $5000 and with local labor. The entry fee for the competition is $20 ($30 for late registration) and is waived / free for entries from developing countries and communities in need.

Award

Three placed finalists and twelve honorable mentions will be selected by the jury. The final decision for the winning design will be chosen by the Somkhele Girls Football team. Although no monetary prize is given to selected teams, the winning design will be built in Somkhele in 2005.

All finalists and a number of honorable mentions will be featured in the March/April 2005 issue in I.D. (International Design) Magazine. In addition to displaying entries on its website, Architecture for Humanity will exhibit selected entries on a traveling exhibition starting in December of 2004.
