Malawi Schools

This project was set up in partnership with the Clinton Global Initiative and the Malawi Ministry of Education, seeking to provide free primary education for all children in low cost, environmentally responsive classroom buildings. A measure of the project's success is that the classroom design has been adopted as the design model for rural schools in Malawi - one of the world's least developed countries. The design, for a relatively modest cost of only $20,000 per classroom, has created a school format for 170 children that can also be used in a variety of ways by local communities.
