Modern Education and Training Institute , Rudrapur village , Bangladesh Completed in 2006. Architect: Anna Heringer, Eike Roswag based in Germany The entire budget for the school construction remained within the village and the direct surrounding: the building materials earth and bamboo were all local as well as the construction workers. The construction workers were all day-labourers from the village Rudrapur. During the construction process they were trained in improved earth- and bamboo construction techniques. The building techniques were chosen in order to be able to be replicated by the local people and in order to have a positive effect on the existing, poor housing situations.
