1st place: Zhen Lei (China)
"Ruins are not the end of architecture, but its origin. The ‘Woven Clouds’ school floats above the shanty area, assembled with sandwich panels and scaffolding into a form that fuses structure, experience and the scenery. The school is like a lattice structure growing in the earth, it is not permanent, this informal building will inspire community participation and education revolution."
2nd prize: Ling Lee and Hsieh I Jon (Taiwan)
"Earthquakes, typhoons and volcanoes constantly ravage coastal regions around the globe. Countless schools take the brunt of this destructive force, but simultaneously actas emergency operation centres after the disaster. ‘The Nest – Shelter School’ uses a new system that can be easily constructed with hands-on materials and which can be readily transported to damaged environments."
3rd prize: Nikita D’Silva, Siddhant Tikkoo and Debolina Ray (India)
"Our vision of a school is one with no boundaries between education and culture, a space that unites native dying skill sets with integrated learning". Inspired by theindigenous Gond tribe, their lifestyle and households, the school is a sublime balance between enclosed and shared spaces made using locally sourced materials.
