[ inspiration ]
Classrooms will be located near the community garden for herbs and vegetables, so students can constantly interact with the food they grow and learn farming through project-based learning (PBL).
Volounteers will also be able to look after goats to not only learn stock raising but also develop emotional intelligence
[ enviroment ]
The sawdust will be added to the walls vertically and horizontally to strengthen the construction and save on materials.
Mixing it with plaster will help to toughen
the array and avoid using a more expensive grid. Narrow windows on the west walls give enough natural light without allowing too much heat to enter the classrooms.
Each class has an open space for flexibility when designing for educational purposes.
