School4Burma

Mae Sot, Thailand

Competition entry for a modular, portable school for migrant refugee and migrant communities on the border of Burma and Thailand.  The school is meant to be easily transportable and uses a hybrid steel and bamboo structural system.  The steel panels are transported when the building is relocated; the bamboo is left behind and composted.  The panel system allows the structures to be reconfigured in many ways to respond to site particulars.
