Mayukwayukwa Refugee Camp

Mayukwayukwa Refugee Camp: a Sustainable Development Center in Zambia

This competition is calling for proposals to design a new Sustainable Development Center in Mayukwayuukwa refugee camp, with the focus on using local and sustainable materials and easy-to-build construction techniques that can be replicable by the refugees when building their own houses. We are looking for a building that can become a reference for the whole community.

The new Sustainable Development Center will have three main functions: 1. Host volunteers, staff and NGO members, 2. Organize workshops and courses and 3. Support local authorities in the implementation of programs and activities. The assigned plot has a dimension of 120m x 120m and the program will include six bedrooms for volunteers, three classrooms/ multipurpose spaces, an office, a kitchen with dining area, bathrooms, an orchard and a small farm, and several areas for outdoor activities.
