The site is located in a low-income neighborhood in Moreno, 36km west of Buenos Aires city, Argentina. According to the 2001 Census, in Moreno 69.9% of the population is poor, and 29.8% live in extreme poverty.
The site is accessible by public transportation (buses), with a stop only a few blocks away. The streets are paved (a must during the rainy season). There is a kindergarten adjacent to the site, and primary school nearby. Both have no sports facilities. The center will be used for other institutions and for the entire community.
Besides fame + glory, the overall winner will be given $2,000 USD. An additional $2,000 USD may be awarded as a design stipend towards design development and project oversight – while working with the community and project partners. If the winning team is not locally licensed then a partnership will be formed.
The runner up will be given $1,000 USD.
