People affected by conflict and other humanitarian crises say education is one of their top priorities, and for children, it is their top priority. Education provides physical and psychosocial protection that can save and sustain lives. Education should be available to everyone.
In a crisis state of emergency, everything should be easily assembled, disassembled, and transformed.
Emergency means feasibility. A practical design should be simple and focused.
“Education everywhere” is a design for a mobile school consisting of six trailers that can be transformed into a more complex educational facility. Four of the trailers are designed as fold-construction tents which can be opened up to become two classrooms, a library, and a computer room. The classrooms can also be joined and used as one room, as well as a dormitory space during the night. The tents are easily assembled using the force of the vehicles. The other two trailers consist of toilets, a small kitchen, and a back office room which also can be used as storage when the school is being transported.
This kind of design offers a very flexible spatial composition that can be used in a variety of situations.
