  • Located in the northeast of the country, more than 1000 km of 

    Niamey, Fachi in the Agadez Region consists of 2,000 inhabitants 

    and doesn’t have any school.

     T.S. School is a proposal to contribute to local development with 

    the aim to create educational facility, but multifunctional building 

    such as community places or meeting. With environmental, social 

    and sustainable approach, the project is inspired by traditional 

    African architecture: the Case of Africa. Free, curved form, allows 

    integration school into desert environment. Local materials such as 

    straw, clay, earth, and wood are mainly used. School’s thermal 

    comfort is procured by creating the freshness in this environment. 

     The principle of Musgum Case (northern Cameroon) to create a 

    natural temperature difference with a voluntary exchange of heat 

    between hot air and cold air inside the Structure was applied. 

    Wooden bearing structure and light polycarbonate filter help to 

    diffuse natural light, retain rain water and dust particles. Straw 

    envelope above the polycarbonate is used to filter the sunlight; it is 

    solar screen. Clay is principally used. The project will create a space 

    for reflection, sharing and exchange. Children interact with the area 

    whether it’s; studying, running, walking, leaning or sitting, playing… 

    helping to inspire.
