Nike Game Changers rural sports center
San Pedro Apostol, Mexico . 2011 . Volunteer in construction team
Nike Game Changers Rural Sports Center, a project by Blaanc Architects and Be Root studio, was a winning entry in a competition promoted by Architecture for Humanity and Nike. It comprises a bamboo shading structure for outdoor events, one soccer field/basketball court, one kayak deck, changing rooms, WCs and storage room.
I developed construction techniques firstly in a series of theoretical and practical workshops and after as part of the construction team.
The construction used local materials such as bamboo, earth and ceramic tiles. The techniques used included rammed earth and adobe walls, clay floors and wall finishes, bamboo structure and reed ceilings among others.
