Our life with the bombs
2011 / 2012, Phonsavan (LAO)

The Quality of Life Association (QLA) is a lao not-for-profit organization supporting UXO-Survivors and People with Disabilities in Xiengkhouang, Lao PDR. The QLA runs a Visitor Centre in Phonsavan which informs the general public about the legacies of war and the activities of the QLA. In order to attract more visitors and include diverse functions (such as a Souvenir Shop, Meeting Place, Video Room), the Visitor Centre needed a re-design. In close collaboration with the local partners and using local knowledge and resources, pingpongcollective supported this initiative with specific design skills (co-design, furniture, exhibition, illustration, logo…).
