The Soweta Football Training Centre in South Africa is a sharp, cutting-edge and thoroughly impressive facility that juggles function and environmental concerns.

The building makes use of passive structural benefits such as sun shading, natural ventilation and reduced energy loads, but also makes use of technology such as water-based cooling systems, energy-efficient lighting and a solar-powered water heating system. In this way the Soweta Football Training Centre serves as a tremendous institution for young soccer hopefuls without throwing the environment under the earth to do so.
