The Joe Slovo West Community Project is a haven for small children on the outskirts of Port Elizabeth in South Africa. The small school’s design was managed by Kevin Kimwelle .
Read about Kevin and his work in this article in The Guardian.
The project was a total renovation of a previous nursery that had become too small to host the growing number of toddlers that relied the nursery on a regular basis. A local non-profit organisation, Love Story, stepped in and drafted the help of a number of architects to revamp the space. T
With emphasis placed on the involvement of local citizens rather than a foreign company who are disconnected to the space, this is an example of design for the people, by the people.
