School for Syrian Refugees #withsyria

  1. 1. ! Self-Built Transitional School Designed for: Syrian Refugees Cost: $17-25K per School
  2. 2. Prefabricated Deployable Self-Build Shelters for Syrian Refugees // Housing In 2013 we began designing a self built housing system that could be assembled in an urban or rural setting for less than $1500 per home. Working with Pilosio Spa in Udine, Italy and persian designer and natural building expert Pouya Khazael we built and tested a series of prototype structures. This included a clustering system for extended families. ! From this planning exercise we began to experiment with building a quick medical or educational structure for camps.
  3. 3. Prefabricated Deployable Self-Build Shelters for Syrian Refugees // Transitional School Set around a tree the school is built in a courtyard design and made from light metal frames that are infilled with local materials.The structure includes natural ventilation and rainwater catchment. Solar panels can be attached to the system to create an off grid school. ! Below are test blocks that can be perforated with windows and doors. By connecting two blocks we can create a simple classroom.
  4. 4. Prefabricated Deployable Self-Build Shelters for Syrian Refugees // Transitional School The 100 sq. m school can be built on a 14m x 14m plot at a cost of approx. 17K - 25K USD. The later price incorporates solar panels for a complete off grid solution. ! Each school unit allows for 48 to 60 students and 4 teachers per session. Most camp schools are doing double shifts allowing approx 100 kids per school.
  5. 5. Prefabricated Deployable Self-Build Shelters for Syrian Refugees // Transitional School When the Syrian conflict is resolved each school can be dismantled and redeployed within Syria. We believe that the humanitarian community needs to work on structures that allow for the continuity of care and are building equity within the affected country. ! Eventually this system can be manufactured and built by the host country. Once a roadmap for returning home begins we can then use the existing structure as a transitional school for returning refugees. ! Assembly and Redeployment should take less than 3 days per school.
