Description:

Snøhetta has partnered with Zimbaqua, the world’s first mine empowering women through sustainable production practices, to create a new community-focused Center near Karoi, Zimbabwe. This partnership brings together Snøhetta’s design teams with the women who work to harvest aquamarine from the earth so that this thriving ecological and economic activity can continue to grow in the years ahead. Inspired by the traditional arts from the region and by the curving dry stone walls of the Great Zimbabwe palace, the Zimbaqua Center will create a vibrant social heart in the region where miners, their families, and visitors can flourish.
