You can see the same project designed by arch. Jaffer Tukan in Jordan, he won the Aga Khan Award for Architecture for his design.

Mohammad Al Asad (director of the CSBE) has written a wonderful article about the Jafar Toukan SOS in Aqaba, Jordan. It is published in the regional magazine Architecture plus, form Dubai, issue #3, June 2003.

Yes, Toukan project is a great one. Unfortunately I have not received this issue of ARCH+.

It is important that one realizes the variety of purposes, activities and objectives of these villages, and the overall process of developing these villages, starting from fundraising and donations, to establishing missions, curriculum for education and training and many other issues that influence the design and phasing of these projects. Below are two resources that may be of help especially in developing an architectural program and the inception stage.

-SOS-International In this site you have options to select a country and a village where you can see some images of the buildings and activities.

-SOS-Lebanon

-SOS-India

Good Luck

It may be too late to bring this back, but, did you see the SOS Children's Village in Aqaba in the ArchNet Digital Library? There are seventy photographs and five documents that were submitted to the Aga Khan Award for Architecture, including the architect's record, drawings, photographs, presentation panels and a technical review. There's also a short write-up on the SOS Children's Village in Amman, which is also by Jafar Tukan.

There are eight SOS Children's Villages featured on ArchNet; I found them by typing 'SOS' in the Search.
