About Malcolm Gigg

The Buturi Makongoro Project is the construction of a new school in a remote village in Tanzania in Africa.

ara-logoARA Architecture were approached in 2010 and asked if they would be involved in designing and assisting in the construction of a new school for a village in Tanzania, Africa We are proud to say that not only have we designed a new passive modular construction school that allows for both the heat, wind, rain, the school has been constructed with natural materials that are either found or made within the village (mud bricks) that we have also visited the site, carried out an assessment of the orientation, wind impact from the valley, sun orientation and the issues with both insects, passive ventilation and proximity to the village.

ARA Architecture remain involved with this project and are currently arranging to revisit the village within the next 12 months.
