Theme and background

 
Archstorming’s new competition takes us to Senegal (Africa), a country with regions where only 50% of school-age children have access to education and where classrooms are often crammed with up to 80 students per class due to the limited number of structures. 
 
In this project Archstorming will be collaborating with the NGO Let's Build My School (LBMS),  a UK registered charity which was founded in 2016 to build schools in developing countries with a particular focus on remote areas which lack educational facilities.  
 
Beyond delivering structures built using locally sourced, sustainable, recycled materials, LBMS researches and applies construction techniques which do not require any prior technical skills in construction so that the local community may be able to replicate the process and help to further develop their village long after LBMS has left. Applying those principles will be the challenge for our next competition, where the winning proposal will be built.
 
Archstorming is calling for proposals to design an elementary school in Marsassoum, Senegal. The school is currently constructed of bamboo walls and zinc roofs and it is in very bad conditions. The classrooms rarely survive the rainy season and that results in the cancellation of classes and students failing their academic year. 
 
In this competition we will research innovative and low-cost construction techniques in order to replace this temporary school with built structures. One of the most important aspects of this competition is to inspire people so they can build their own houses using the same technique once the construction of the school has finished. 
 
The new school will need 7 classrooms, a library, two offices, and latrines. In addition, each contestant can optionally include a canteen, an orchard and a small corral in the facility. See more detailed information in the briefing of the competition.

Site

 
The plot extends to approximately 920 m². It has a rectangular shape. The longest side measures 37 m while the shorter 25 m.
 
The plot is completely flat, there is no slope to be considered.
 
The main entrance is located at the west side. It can stay where it is now or it can be relocated to the south if necessary.
 
There is a big tree in the middle of the plot. It is a moraceae and it has to be kept. It provides shadow to the kids and they spend a lot of time under it. It has an approximate height of 6,5m and the tree crown's diameter is around 16m.
 
The plot has the following constructions:
  • Classrooms: there are two temporary buildings that function as classrooms, they are 17,5m × 6,5m and were built with woven bamboo walls and zinc roof. These structures will be demolished.
  • Brick building: it is located at the South-West corner of the plot. It has two different rooms and it measures 4,4m × 8,4m. It is built with cement walls and metal roof. It is used as a small library and director's office.
  • Latrine module: located at the South-East corner, it contains two latrines. This module will be replaced with a new one, you can choose to locate it in the same place or move it to a different one.
  • Well: there is a well at the North-West part of the plot.
