Classrooms of the Future
According to the World Bank, educating all children worldwide will require the construction of 10 million new classrooms in more than 100 countries by 2015. At the same time, millions of existing classrooms are in serious need of repair and refurbishment. Architecture for Humanity’s 2009 Open Architecture Challenge invited the global design and construction community to collaborate with teachers and students to create smarter, safer and more sustainable learning environments. This exhibit features the winning entry, 52 finalists (picked from a pool of over 1,000 entrants) and videos documenting architects, teachers and students from over 40 countries. Join us for the opening event on Tuesday, Jan. 12.
