Abstract [en]

This is not yet another ordinary primary school in Tanzania. This is an idea about a new way of learning where architecture and its materiality create inspiring spaces. Set in between 3 small villages in an area heavily affected by AIDS and Malaria the aim is to make good quality education viable for everyone.The idea is to learn by doing. The compound will have several workshops for practical education and music and dance will play a central role. With a smaller scale and more intimate green in-between spaces it resembles more of a small village than an ordinary Tanzanian school. Smart solutions with green roofs solve the over heating problem by the strong sun, as well as filter rain water that is collected for use. A semi-open bamboo facade on the inner walls of the compound create natural ventilation as well as let daylight in.

Abstract [sv]

Det här är ingen vanlig ny skola i Tanzania. Det är en ide om ett nytt sätt av lärande där arkitekturen och dess materialitet skapar inspirerande miljöer. Med en position mellan tre små byar som är starkt utsatta för AIDS och Malaria är tanken att skolan ska göra god kvalitativ undervisning tillgänglig för alla. Här lär man sig genom praktisk undervisning. Skolområdet kommer att ha flera verkstäder för praktisk undervisning och dans och musik kommer att spela en central roll. Med en mindre skala och mer intima gröna rum mellan byggnaderna påminner skolan mer om en liten by än en vanlig Tanzaniansk skola. Smarta lösningar med gröna tak löser problem med överhettning av stark sol och filtrering av regnvatten som samlas upp i behållare för att användas. En uppluckrad bambufasad på områdets innerväggar skapar naturlig ventilation och insläpp av dagsljus.
