Community Center in India Architecture Competition

Archstorming, with Fundación Vicente Ferrer (FVF) and local partner, Rural Development Trust (RDT), present the Community Center in India Architecture Competition.

The objective of this competition is to create a prototype for a Community Center that can be consistently replicated across various villages while also allowing for customization to meet local needs. The design must incorporate a core structure that remains always the same, featuring spaces fundamental to the heart of community life, while allowing optional elements to be included or omitted based on each village’s unique needs and priorities.

Furthermore, the design should embrace modularity, allowing optional elements to be constructed and integrated into the original project as needs arise or as funding becomes available.

Goals include:

  • Offering a shared public space for the entire village to meet.
  • Strengthening unity and equality among all villagers, regardless of religion, caste, gender, or age.
  • Recognizing the individual and collective needs, desires, and ambitions.
  • Encouraging interaction and self-organization through the construction process and subsequent activities.
  • Raising community awareness on various issues pertinent to the local context, such as sanitation, environmental education, leadership, horticulture, and maintenance.
