InsideOut: Ghana’s highly sustainable, low-cost school.

Published at: 18 May 2018

Constructed in 60 days with just 12 000 euro, InsideOut is a school prototype built in the village of Yeboahkrom, Ghana. As no electricity was available on site, the school was built entirely by hand using materials from the area, with the help of the local population and volunteers from 20 different countries.

After wind had destroyed the only school in the area, the project was designed by Andrea Tabocchini and Francesca Vittorini. The site limitations and lack of resources became an opportunity to create a sustainable design that merges architecture with the landscape.

The result is a space that blurs the boundary between outside and inside, offering an affordable, easily replicable alternative to standard introverted classrooms. Read the full article here.
