Here is the commentary of the jury of the competition:
“The third place winners of the Uganda LGBT Youth Asylum architecture competition taking zoning to another level, creating a village-within-a-building in their project. Their designs are very in keeping with the local community, creating a sustainable environment that works to further integrate LGBT people into the wider community.
The designs created by our third place winners, place a strong focus on using sustainable materials and accessing sustainable resources such as collecting rainwater and incorporating solar panels. The materials and designs used in this project are also especially in keeping with the local environment and community. Brick is featured as a primary construction material in these designs, it is also a material that is often produced locally and so works to support the community in the youth centre’s construction while at the same time keeping costs low.”
