Making learning fun and comfortable is what the Earthen School by Ziegert Roswag Seiler Architekten can provide to its students in Jar Maulwi, Pakistan. Education is important and we all know that a conducive and comfortable classroom improve the students ability to learn. Unlike the traditional structures in Pakistan that are unstable and has low natural lighting in the interior, the Earthen School is an eco-friendly school that has various green features including the use of sunlight for lighting.
The school uses bamboo and earth in its construction. The two new school buildings are supposed to provide eight classrooms. Each building – the first is under construction right now – comes in two floors. In the existing buildings on the campus there are already eight classrooms. The school is also designed to be flood and earthquake resistant. Despite of the modern approach that Ziegert Roswag Seiler Architekten has applied to the construction of the school, the local building traditions of Pakistan like cobwork is still developed continuously.
Aside from the eco-friendly features, the school is also designed to have protection from termites, moisture-resistant foundation, and horizontal barrier promoting an increased permanency of the school.
The construction of the Earthen School will definitely help the kids in Pakistan when it comes to learning. They will now have a refreshing school with enough lighting through its large windows. With this construction on going, it might be a tool to increase the literacy rate of Pakistan.
Aside from the materials used to build the school, workers for Earthen School by Ziegert Roswag Seiler Architekten are the locals and they are trained as well with the new and altered techniques.
