A day at school.

Took these shots while doing workshops in local primary schools in Lilongwe recently. I’m a big fan of the architecture and design of local schools here, though haven’t spoken to users to know if the classrooms actually ‘work’. I would imagine it’s tough to design low-cost schools in a country where, over the course of a year, day-time temperatures can vary widely, from under 10 degrees to closer to 30 (Celsius). More schools/classrooms are however needed; most schools, particularly in poorer areas of Lilongwe, are said to be over-crowded. (The photos were taken during a school holiday.)
