Design For The Children is an open, international design competition asking architects and designers from around the world to develop a sustainable, culturally responsive, pediatric clinic model for East Africa.

The purpose of Design For The Children is to improve lives by exploring sustainable, culturally responsive, pediatric health centers throughout East Africa.

Everyone is welcome to participate in Design For The Children. No restrictions are set on your status, job, age or nationality. Entrants don't need to be licensed architects. Designs may be submitted by an individual or by a team. There is no limit to the number of entries per person, or the number of teams with which an individual may participate.

All entries must be submitted without any markings that will identify team members in order to facilitate fair jurying of the competition. Building Plans, Building Elevations, Site Plans, Renderings, Project description page, and any other images submitted for consideration should not include title blocks or any other identifying information. Failure to comply with this rule will lead to disqualification. This does not apply to the entrant identification sheet, which must be completed in full and must include the name of the Team Lead, group members in group entries, contact email address, city, state, and country. Please note: Information entered in the entrant identification sheet will be used to give proper credit to design team members.

Designs should encompass two phases, the first being the basic pediatric clinic that will address childbirth and disease prevention and treatment. It will be a satellite clinic to support a larger medical hub. This design should be fully developed. The second phase calls for a way to convert the existing satellite building of Phase One into a larger medical hub/small hospital that will provide support for surrounding satellite offices. The design for Phase Two does not need to be as fully developed, but should clearly show how the requirements can be added onto the first phase.
