Sri Lanka, Ambepussa | Building Better Recognition, Asia Pacific, 2017 | Silver, Global, 2015

Post-War Collective in Sri Lanka
Post-War Collective in Sri Lanka

Following over 25 years of civil war, the reintegration of young soldiers is one of the great challenges Sri Lanka faces. This Community Library provided young men from underprivileged backgrounds with construction training during the implementation of the building. The slender building with a footprint of 1,400 sq m sits lightly in the landscape and wraps around an inner courtyard, taking full advantage of cross ventilation and daylighting. Rammed-earth walls and recycled materials reduce costs and the ecological footprint.
