Project Summary

Through the Looking-Glass in Uganda

Odek Center for Nodding Disease

Exuberant and playful transformation of traditional type forms for a healing center for children with Nodding Disease in Uganda aimed at community-building after decades of conflict.

This “playground-as- campus” is the result of a participatory design process that incorporates the formal vernacular of traditional architecture as filtered through the drawings of its future inhabitants.
