Idea Code 16336

Though modest, children’s schools can be laboratories for rethinking design strategies as well as catalysts for the enrichment of community life, especially in impoverished contexts. Giancarlo Mazzanti and Juana Salcedo comment on the potentials of educational architecture in an article followed by nine works located on three continents. In Africa, Unmaterial Studio and Selgascano have built an education center in Konokono (Kenya) and Orkidstudio, the Swawou School in Kenewa (Sierra Leone). In Asia, ARCò Studio and MC Architects have carried out a children’s center in the Gaza Strip (Palestine), in America, Maya, Serna, Valenci, and Herrera have completed an educational park in Antioquía (Colombia).
