General Architecture Collaborative has designed the Learning and Sports Centre in Masoro Village, Rwanda.

This project is located among the rolling hills of Rwanda and was designed by community members of a small rural farming village.

The Learning and Sports Centre takes the stance that sustainability goes beyond building performance. It encompasses sustaining communities through investment, inclusion, and advancement.

The project was designed, built and managed by the community it serves, and was created using local materials and combines traditional and advanced construction methods, utilising sustainable building practices. This centre offers facilities and programs to ensure access to education and wellness to all community members free of charge.
