Volume Zero has announced the results of their RE School architecture competition 2018, which challenged participants to design and innovative school that brings education to children living in the most inaccessible areas of the world. Serving as a hub for interaction between local communities, the winning schemes ranged from a school floating above a shanty area to a transportable building made of hands-on material.

“Ruins are not the end of architecture, but its origin. The “Woven Clouds” school floats above the shanty area, assembled with sandwich panels and scaffolding into a form that fuses structure, experience, and the scenery. The school is like a lattice structure growing in the earth, it is not permanent, this informal building will inspire community participation and education revolution.”

Second Prize: Ling Lee and Hseich I Jon (Taiwan)

“Earthquakes, typhoons, and volcanoes constantly ravage coastal regions around the globe. Countless schools take the brunt of this destructive force but simultaneously act as an emergency operations center after the disaster. “The Nest – Shelter School” uses a new system that can be easily constructed with hands-on materials which can be readily transported to damaged locations.”

Third Prize: Nikita D’Silva, Siddhant Tikkoo, and Debolina Ray (India)

“Our vision of a school is one with no boundaries between education and culture, a space that unites native dying skill sets with integrated learning. Inspired by the indigenous Gond tribe, their lifestyle, and households, the school is a sublime balance between enclosed and shared spaces made using locally sourced materials.”
