World Vision's Sant Lespwa of Hope near Hinche wins architectural award

Here is a picture of World Vision's Sant Lespwa of Hope located near the city of Hinche. Rothschild Doyno Collaborative received the award from The American Institute of Architects for the design

The Sant Lespwa Center of Hope, located outside of Hinche, Haiti, has garnered the team an award for architecture in the 2015 AIA Honor Awards. Commissioned by World vision, the center was built with the Haitian breeze in mind, with the building giving over to a breezeway that allows the light and wind in, and also gives astounding views of the nearby mountains. The scope of the brilliance of the architecture also involves water collection, the generation of electricity, and consideration of the treatment of sewage. All these plans were made with the input of the community, and the building also provided the training of over a hundred locals.
