CollectiveProject has designed a rural school for cement factory workers' children in Andhra Pradesh, India.
Located in rural Andhra Pradesh, a hot and dry region in Southern India, this project re-envisions a 15-year-old school building into a vibrant learning environment for the children of cement factory workers.
Responsible design as a core value is captured using locally sourced waste, renewable materials and upskilled labour.
Strategic planning and a 20,000-square-foot bamboo canopy connecting the existing structure with secondary pavilions form a shaded multipurpose zone open to the community during off hours.
The school, with 600 children currently enrolled, is a prototype by the Penna Foundation that will change the quality of education at factories across the region.
