Floating School

May 3, 2013

In Lagos, Nigeria an innovative approach to solving both educational and climate change problems resulted in a pragmatic yet beautiful floating classroom.  Think of it as a floating version of the SAGE modular classroom.  Taking a passive approach the design focuses on shading and ventilation as design strategies.

Designed by the Dutch architecture firm NLE, the first prototype is under construction in Lagos.
