Montessori Children’s School Competition Entry
|Competition Funder||Arthur Waser Foundation|
|Project Status||1st Runner up in Competition|
The design was an entry into a competition held by the Montessori Foundation, to develop a children’s house and school in line with the Montessori Education Principles.
The concept of the design was to adapt the Masaai Boma planning form into climate-responsive structures.
The design proposed affordable locally available materials, which will allow for easy maintenance of the structures. Solar studies were done on the design to ensure that ample light is available throughout the buildings while ensuring the buildings do not overheat. And thus ample shading was provided through elements of the buildings and natural ventilation through trees.
