The Good Cause Opening in Rwanda

— by

From November 24th to Dec. 1st 2012, the Archis-curated exhibit The Good Cause made an appearance in Kigali, Rwanda. Initiated by Killian Doherty, the architect of the Football for Hope Centre in Kigali, The Good Cause was presented inside one of its featured case studies.

Doherty’s center is a beautiful community building for the people in the neighborhood of Kimisagara to play football, meet, learn, and relax. Doherty created a huge overhang between the brick building and the football pitch to provide shelter during the rainy season and used the container in which the pitch was transported, as a rainwater collector.
