World Architecture Festival 2012: Mapungubwe Interpretation Centre

In this clip from from the 2012 World Architecture Festival, programme director Paul Finch tells us how the jury were “bowled over” by the hand-constructed Mapungubwe Interpretation Centre by Peter Rich Architects, winner of the festival’s World Building of the Year award in 2009. .

Finch explains how indigenous building techniques had to be retaught to the South African community that built the centre because they were more familiar with modern construction.
