Zero-Energy Classroom Model

Neno, Malawi. 2010

This ongoing partnership with the Clinton Global Initiative and the Malawi Ministry of Education creates low cost, environmentally responsive, naturally-lit classroom buildings for rural schoolchildren. The designs, developed in partnership with Arup, have been adopted as a school model in Malawi, one of the world’s least developed countries. At a cost of US$25,000 per building the designs use locally available materials to create flexible, zero-energy buildings to accommodate up to 170 children and space for community activities in a mixture of open-sheltered and enclosed spaces.
