Seed School Manifesto 1

RISD partnered with EARTH University to design a low-tech sustainable school for the tropics. Our interdisciplinary Innovation Studio worked as a team to define our manifesto and design criteria, and focused on individual components. My project is a shelter that uses recycled plastic bottles to capture sun and create extraordinary learning environments with a play of light and color. — Fall 2012

UPDATE: A second group went back to EARTH University to build the prototype school (photos by Jin):
