Apply for Kaira Looro Architecture Competition 2021. The theme of the competition is Women’s House. It is to promote gender equality in Africa.

The objective of the architecture competition is the creation of a “Women’s House” within a symbolic and environmentally friendly structure inspired by local traditions. A space in which associations and members of society will be able to meet and discuss the topics of equality and human rights, guaranteeing involvement and emancipation of the female community in favor of the region’s social, economic, and political development. Gender equality is, in fact, not only a fundamental human right but a necessary condition for a prosperous world. Ensuring that everyone has equal access to education, medical care, and employment, as well as a presence in decision-making processes, will promote a sustainable economy that benefits society and humanity as a whole.
