BRAC Education Program (BEP) was engaged in bringing primary education to Rohingya children. Children are the most disadvantaged group among the Rohingya refugee community, ousted from their homeland in the Rakhine State, situated on the western coast of Myanmar. Rohingyas fled violence and atrocities in their ancestral territory and found refuge in Cox’s Bazar, located in the southeastern corner of Bangladesh. Among other NGOs, BEP was given the charge of establishing schools for children in various Rohingya camps. BEP approached Ci+AU to design a low-cost temporary school building prototype to be made with available local materials, such as timber and bamboo. Our team endeavored to create a bamboo edifice that would be functional yet aesthetically inspiring, cost-effective yet traditionally tectonic. The end result was a climate-responsive, two-storied school building made of bamboo and wood. To protect it from surface runoff, the building was lifted off the ground by means of a wooden base. While the form of the school building takes inspiration from a traditional Bengal hut, its tectonics reveal modernist aesthetic sensibilities.
