[priložnost] ITHUBA [opportunity]


projects of FH Kärnten, Ljubljana Faculty of Architecture and buildCollective in Africa

 

 

ithuba: a Zulu word for opportunity

 

Ithuba is a name of the schools built in poor areas of South Africa by Austrian, German, Slovene and Swiss students of architecture in cooperation with local people: 'Ithuba Community College' in the shantytownsof Johannesburg (2007-13) and its subsidiary on Indian Ocean (from 2010 on). Both schools are intended for children who grow up in poverty and scarcity of shantytowns with small chances for a good profession and decent life in the future.

 

Ithuba is also an aim of social projects – construction of schools, community centers – of S2ARCH foundation, European schools of architecture and architectural team buildCollective in Africa.The projects are, globally speaking, a small contribution to achieving the goals ofthe UN Millennium Declaration, but of great importance for the future of some hundreds of African children and other people.

 

The exhibition is created in collaboration of FH Kärnten from Austria and University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Architecture from Slovenia. It presents projects of Carinthian and Slovene students in both Ithuba schools, construction of the bridge over Mzamba River on Wild Coast and projects of architectural collective buildCollective in South Africa and Tansania.
