Floating School in Nigeria


"The 'Makoko Floating School,' a triangular form in section constructed with a parallel series of timber A-frames on a platform supported by emptied blue barrels. The 3-story structure contains classrooms on the middle level in enclosed volumes flanked by public green space and playground below, and an additional open-air rooftop classroom above.
   Rooftop PV cells on the roof collect solar energy, and coupled with water catchment systems, make the dynamic educational facility partially self sustainable.
   Slender wooden slats create a shading device along the outer envelope along with well-ventilated spaces to maintain a comfortable interior environment.…"
