trip to Africa...
a Remote School in Zambia
In the harsh
sun of the African savanna, the Mwabwindo School had to be lit primarily
by daylight because electricity was unreliable. Renfro Design Group's
award-winning solution utilizes inventive architectural interventions
to harvest the more reliable light source. Informed by extensive
daylight studies, their design employs a handmade perforated brick
wall to brighten corridors and bring daylight into the classrooms
in conjunction with other elements including a dramatic center canopy
with voids directing the sunlight.
despite the difficult conditions and limited budget, is a learning
environment that is not only comfortable but also friendly and stimulating.
In its success, the school has become a gathering area for the community.
Join us for
a virtual tour and presentation followed by a Q&A with the designers.
