Mapungubwe National Park: The architecture of the Mapungubwe Interpretation Centre

The Mapungubwe Interpretation Centre in the Mapungubwe National Park in South Africa might not have won one of this year' prestigous Aga Khan Awards for Architecture, but it was shortlisted as one of the possible winners and so the Aga Khan Development Network produced quite an interesting video about the architecture of the Interpretation Centre. Definitley worth watching! Enjoy!

The Mapungubwe Interpretation Centre was officially opened 10 September 2012. It was build by Peter Rich Architects from Johannesburg and already won the 2009 World Building of the Year award.
The 28,000ha Mapungubwe National Park, located in Limpopo, is bordering Botswana and Zimbabwe. Together with the Northern Tuli Game Reserve in Botswana and the Tuli Safari Circle in Zimbabwe, it forms part of the Greater Mapungubwe Transfrontier Conservation Area.
