Each year, thousands of children die in Africa of preventable and treatable diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis, and HIV. New mothers often lack the care needed for their health and those of their newborn children. Design for the Children is an international design competition hoping to improve the health of mothers and children through the construction of non-profit clinics. The competition challenges participants of all age and skill levels from around the globe to develop a model for a pediatric clinic that can be modified to fit different sites in East Africa.
Designs should encompass two phases, the first being the basic pediatric clinic that will address childbirth and disease prevention and treatment. It will be a satellite clinic to support a larger medical hub. This design should be fully developed. The second phase calls for a way to convert the existing satellite building of Phase One into a larger medical hub/small hospital that will provide support for surrounding satellite offices. The design for Phase Two does not need to be as fully developed, but should clearly show how the requirements can be added onto the first phase.
We hope your design is selected, and we look forward to working with you.
Jury will be composed of a collection of professional architects, Fight For The Children representatives, and professionals experienced in providing health care services in the developing world.
Honorable mentions (5), finalists (25), and the winning design will be the primary models used to work toward a built pediatric clinic in East Africa. Entrants for the selected entries used to develop that final built clinic will be invited to join Fight For The Children and competition administrators at the selected site for the opening of the clinic.
