The interior of small houses abroad

Functional design of the open children's corner

Design of an open children's corner and smallthe pavilions, which play the role of original classrooms in the open air, were the result of the hard work of third-year students at the SABA Academy of Architecture. These buildings are part of the Center for Rural Knowledge, which was organized on the border with a semi-desert zone near the local Environmental Education Center near one of the small towns of India. The goal of this project is to teach children and adolescents the basics of agriculture. Future young architects were asked to develop a project that best suited to these climatic conditions. As a result, they chose the simplest building materials for the erection of structures, the appearance of which organically fit into the environment. Natural stone platforms, brick pillars, bamboo frames, fabric walls, wooden slats and straw - all this provides sufficient strength and at the same time looks light and harmonious. In addition, woven fabric partitionslocal craftsmen, clearly reflect the Indian flavor, namely the love of this people for bright colors and fancy prints. Some huts have a full roof, others are covered with light cane canopies that give enough shade to cover people inside from the scorching sun. There was no need to take care of rain protection, as this region is one of the driest parts of the country. This project was not only invaluable experience forthe performers themselves, but also brought much joy to the Indian kids, who enjoyed watching the construction of their future school. By the way, designers have built shelves for their textbooks directly into the stone walls of the pavilions. Share your impressions of this project too!
