Perkins+Will has partnered with Infinite Family, a U.S.-based non profit organization, to build shipping container computer labs in South Africa to help students connect with mentors. The firm completed their first LaunchPad learning laboratory in the Alexandra township outside of Johannesburg in August. The shipping container computer labs feature a number of sustainable strategies to reduce energy use, and they are equipped with photovoltaic and battery systems to make them off-grid capable. The team has plans to open 100 more LaunchPads in the next five years to help 11,000 people a year in an effort to reduce crime and increase employment.
