School handmade in Bangladesh

One of the founding members of bricks + cartwheels stumbled across this school and came back to the rest of us saying, "I want to marry this school!"

This school has won the Aga Khan Award for Architecture, 10th award cycle for its innovative use of locally made resources, and the way the project has built on the capacity of the local community. The project has created jobs and training through “learning by doing” which helps the local craftsmen to improve the standards and condition of rural housing in general.
We love this building and commend the architects for their elegant and beautiful solution to a community focused building.
