Abstract

This project is an architectural design work for a proposed Primary School in Bucundura Uganda. The project brings awareness of the education issues for young children in Central Africa.

The finished design was created by three KSC students, Connor Bell, who had the privilege to visit Bucundura in January 2016, Erin Conti, and Brad Donovan. It consists of six classrooms, an administrative building, and a kitchen for serving hot meals during school days. A spacious playground and learning garden features were the center focus of this design.

After a semester of sketching, model making, meetings with the client, and proposals to an architecture firm to oversee the future of the design, the project was complete. With the help of an organization called African Educate in the Monadnock Region a plot of land was purchased for hopes to construct this school by means of private donors in the near future.
