Football is one of the best vehicles for social change (not to mention it’s fun to play). As fans of social change AND fun, Architecture for Humanity, Nike, and Fu.De (Football for Development) have teamed up to host a design competition for a prototype football, education, and health center for Liga FOS — a project that promotes social development through sport in vulnerable Buenos Aires suburbs.
This is an invitation process for architects and designers. At least one member of your team must speak Spanish fluently. And, though we’re not picking favorites, at least one member from your team must reside in one of the Copa America 2011 countries. They are: Argentina; Bolivia; Brazil; Chile; Colombia; Ecuador; Japan; Mexico; Paraguay; Peru; Uruguay; Venezuela.
Registration and submission deadline is March 21. For more information on the schedule, requirements and prizes go to the competition’s official website.
