Tsoga Environmental Center is a community-service and recycling facility situated in a poverty-stricken informal settlement of Cape Town, where the need for a normal community center pales in comparison to widespread socioeconomic despair.

Architects shaped the project to employ local people, teach trade skills, show them a way to build using environmentally responsible materials, establish local sources of affordable building materials, stimulate the local economy, and give the neighborhood hope and dignity – improving quality of life in surprising ways.
