Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
Make Design Matter is a series of monthly inspirational talks for humanitarians.
Article 25, in partnership with the BRE Trust and this months venue host Weston Williamson + Partners, are bringing together outstanding design professionals who work to support the most vulnerable in society across the developing world. These inspiring monthly panel discussions consider the pursuit of progressive, sustainable architecture which focus on the communities they serve.
Meet the architects and designers at the forefront of creative and positive change in building design for international development.
Our second May talk will be delivered by Weston Williamson + Partners on their recently completed school in Cambodia. The talk will be followed by a panel discussion with invited guests.
Until recently, the school in Khyaung Village, 40km north east of Phnom Penh City, catered for 359 pupils aged 3-17 in just two old buildings. The lack of accommodation meant that children travelling from six surrounding villages to this, the area’s only secondary school, had to attend in shifts, part-time.
Weston Williamson + Partners worked with Engenuiti, Integration and Building Trust International to design a building which was flexible and adaptable to meet current and future needs. It comprises three additional classrooms, a library and a covered external classroom with a sunken play area which doubles as an amphitheatre.
