Faculty Architecture Education school by Patrick Schweitzer S&AA

Home > Winners > #104880


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Faculty Architecture

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Education school

INSPIRATION:
The building uses two simple materials commonly found in the region: stone for the exterior envelope; and self-coloured concrete for the interior. The building has small outward-facing windows and large inward-facing windows protected from the sun by roof overhangs. The upper section of the pyramids is truncated in order to bring in natural light and optimise ventilation.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The firm responded to an international call for tender launched in March 2012 by the government of Rwanda for the design of a new architecture school to accommodate 600 students on a 5,600 sq.m. site not far from the existing faculty. For this project we began with a simple form on two levels which we distorted in the same way tectonic forces distort land masses: we pulled on opposite sides, making a gap in the centre that would form the outside area for the students.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The firm responded to an international call for tender launched in March 2012 by the government of Rwanda for the design of a new architecture school to accommodate 600 students on a 5,600 sq.m. site not far from the existing faculty.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Kigali at Rwanda 2017 to 2018

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The building uses two simple materials commonly found in the region: stone for the exterior envelope; and self-coloured concrete for the interior. The building has small outward-facing windows and large inward-facing windows protected from the sun by roof overhangs.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The project does 5 600 square metres

TAGS:
Rwanda, school, architecture, Kigali

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The firm opted for a highly architectural project using complex forms, driven by both pedagogical and environmental concerns, halfway between traditional architecture and contemporary design. This is a simple, didactic building designed to train the future architects of a developing African country whose population is set to double by 2050.

CHALLENGE:
The difficulty of the project was to manage it from France, with a relay on site and to use only local materials.
