US-based musician and producer Pharrell Williams has announced plans for the construction of a $35m youth centre in Virginia Beach, US.

The Pharrell Williams Resource Centre has been designed by Chad Oppenheim of Oppenheim Architecture + Design.

The design of the building resembles a tree house with glass and steel boxes jutting out of the canopy of a lush forest.

The facility will be constructed in a small forest on an open prairie.

The centre, which will be built in partnership with the city of Virginia Beach, is scheduled for completion in 2013.
