 THE PROMISE OF TOMORROW

The schools our children deserve

The project yearns for becoming a reference for the future schools of the NGO Abay Ethiopia. Alongside hosting classrooms, the schools could additionally serve as day centers which will lead to an active involvement of the community. 

Our project will be tackling different aspects of the local architecture in all its majesty, especially by using the local materials and emphasizing the discrete yet beautiful simplicity of the locally available techniques.


The extension of the classroom's roof offers a covered courtyard where children will get to

play. This area can also host events and activities by opening the interior foldable panels.

All the viewpoints, from the entrance to classrooms, revolve around an agora that will

encourage children to exchange and interact.




The school is made based on a module of 50 m² that corresponds to a classroom that will welcome between 30 and 50 students. The modular components can generate different configurations adapted to each context and offer the opportunity to add new areas.

Therefore, the architectural outcome will differ from one school to another, reinforcing its identity and offering flexibility in terms of the program by making use of the foldable panels. 

Concerning the construction techniques and materials, we were directly inspired by the local architecture. We chose to combine between a structure made with reinforced concrete and exterior walls made with wattle and daub technique. Alongside a floating roof made with zigba and eucalyptus wood and corrugated sheets. 

The roof is equipped with a gutter that conducts rain water to a reservoir that will eventually be used later in the kitchen and latrines.  The movable interior walls are made with bamboo and weaving to lower the cost of construction. We wanted to accommodate air conditioning for the purpose of obstructing the rapid spread of different types of microorganisms such as viruses and therefore ensure the health of the pupils. 

Therefore we implemented breathing walls by using permeable materials and encouraged cross ventilation through windows and the intentional gap between the earth wall and the roof. This will apace with the usage of weaving based on local patterns in the hope of providing a play of shadow and light, bringing a touch of color and preventing insects from entering interior spaces. The purpose of our concept is to ensure the flexibility, durability and originality of our project.
