Mozambique Preschool
Submissions: December 1st, 2019
This competition gives the opportunity to work in the creation of a school in an underdeveloped country. But not only that, in this case the school will be designed for disabled and socially excluded children, so the challenge is even bigger. The projects will have to use locally sourced materials, easy to build constructive systems, and should be self-sufficient in energy terms. They have to be respectful with nature in order to teach the kids the proper way to interact with their natural environment.
