Cool School: Design For An Extreme Climate

How do you get to school if it’s minus 45 °C outside?
How do you gain an education when your nearest school is 20km away?
We are asking you to help us design a ‘Cool School’ for a community in Mongolia.

Building Trust international have just announced their 6th international design competition which seeks to find an innovative school design proposal that can withstand the extreme Mongolian winters. The competition challenges architects, designers and engineers to provide a design solution which has the chance to shape the future of school buildings across cold regions globally.

Contestants should consider environmental conditions, materials, space, comfort, accessibility, adaptability and aesthetics. Building Trust international will work alongside competition partners, World Vision, local government and the school community in Khovd, Mongolia to build the winning school design.

    This is because when there are big fluctuations in supply of
    power, the equipment will end up being faulty thus, shutting down more often. com
    is still so new that all the information I want isn’t there yet.
