Appreciations towards Orient Occident Atelier for providing the following description:


Transforming the construction site itself into a learning kit


▼建筑外观,external view of the building

The school building is not only a traditional lecture space but a proactive space for learning design, construction and spatial creativity. During construction, students will take part in some manageable design. Local kids explore the new uses of space by action. They climb the “Griddy” construction as though it’s a jungle gym.

▼建筑位于丛林之中,the project is located in the jungle

▼开放的入口阶梯,steps at the open entrance


Versatile Architectural Building Envelope


▼格的,具有储物等多种功能,形成开放的室内外关系,grid partition provides storage space as well as defining the outdoor and interior space in an open way

There are spatial flexibilities to the end-users‚ the “Griddy” detail ironmongeries allow the re-configuration of the openings, shelves and lockers. The wall is a double layer steel frame with local wood plates allowing storage and even vertical circulation. The ground classrooms are seamlessly connected with adjacent houses and fields, thereby catering to different events, learning activities and class sizes. The relation between interior and exterior can thus be customized by the users in the future. It’s a welcoming space in which other villagers and students can always see what’s going on and join the classes.

Vernacular methodologies and material

从该地区发现了砖,镀锌铁和木材,这是常见的建筑材料。悬浮混凝土结构减轻了洪水问题,同时给出了传统的柬埔寨底层开放空间。此外,我们还利用当地的建筑方法- 节省成本,并赋予当地人们技能。

Bricks, GMS and wood were discovered from that region which is common building materials. Levitated concrete structure mitigates flooding problem, meanwhile, gives a traditional Cambodian ground floor open space. Also, we make use of the local construction methodology – cost-saving and also empowers people with local skills.

Bottom-up Influence on Urban Context


The school development triggers various improvements for the rural village. After the school was set up, more power supply, tuck shops, water filtration system were set up around. The building is not just classrooms but a social condenser where provide education, sanitation, retails, infrastructure and a gathering space for the daily life of locals.
