Sharon Davis Design

The nonprofit Women for Women International (WFW ) commissioned New York architect Sharon Davis, who had worked with WFW in Kosovo, to design the Women's Opportunity Center. The 5-acre 'mini-village,' with classrooms, dormitories, and communal spaces, is meant for women survivors of the war in Rwanda. Canopies of corrugated metal sit atop circular bases of handmade brick, fired and produced by local women. WFW hopes to open the center on March 8, 2013, International Women's Day.
