It’s hard to believe that October is almost gone… The last few weeks have seen rigorous development of the Shebraber School design. We’ve had our fair share of successes and failures as well as a few sleepless nights; and I think it’s fair to say that we have grown a lot as a team in the process. We’ve been fortunate to have had some great reviewers to guide us as we continue to work toward a full set of construction documents for the project by the end of the semester. Our thanks goes out to those who have taken time away from their own practices in order to foster our growth as architects and ensure that we design an amazing learning environment for those Ethiopian children we all came to love a few weeks ago. The project has come a long way since the initial masterplan presentation. We will post more about our progress in the coming days.
In the meantime, we are also working toward our goal of raising enough money to provide the students of Shebraber School with uniforms. If anyone is interested in donating to this worthwhile cause, you can visit:
Providing the students with uniforms means that each child will have a complete set of clothes for school, something that not all the students currently have. It will also ensure equality amongst the children and set a level playing field in which all are able to succeed.
