After announcing the winners of Architecture Cup last week which held by Architecture for Humanity, here is the first place, appropriate to Brazil: “Community Center for Youth and Sports.”
The main idea of this project was to establish clear relationships between social, ecological and economic. The design consisted of a rectangular metal structure where the volumes are organized horizontally, leaving a void in between.
One of the requests that more complicated of this contest was to deploy the limited proposal on a big plot. This proposal will placed the building as a “gateway” to the sports park and the grounds occupied by 6 fields for football.
The building also designed with a series of energy efficiency systems. Have rainwater accumulator tanks for irrigation, solar energy and design strategies that allow good ventilation and natural lighting.
