With no roads into Bas-Citronniers people build using local bamboo, palm and bwa chen. Bamboo proved to be the best fit for the school due to its unique properties and rapid regrowth.
The roof utilizes the strength of hyper-parabolic forms (think Pringles chips) for an efficient structure made of fiberglass bug screen and painted on cement mixed with acrylic. It's repairable, and light weight at less than a 1/2" thick.
Each classroom has a unique door designed and fabircated by locals.
Kids can peep through the scattered holes in the walls of the Bas-Citronniers school. Created by cutting 5-gal buckets and plastering them into the wall. They add light, air and fun to the facade while being small enough for security.
