Moving Schools

Moving Schools

Building Trust International, £5, 30pp

This book showcases entries in a competition to design school buildings for use in Burma. The Burmese have no legal right to own land and schools are often forced off the land as landlords raise the rent. The competition therefore specified that submissions should be able to be disassembled and moved if the need arose. Ten professional entries and five student entries are presented.
