Architecture Internship in Uganda
Creating a space where children can learn skills that will improve their own lives and their community through the use of local and sustainable materials
The grant recipient interned with Studio FH Architects in Kampala, Uganda on a project to design and construct a non-traditional school in Kapchorwa District. The goal is to create a space where children can learn skills that will improve their own lives and their community through the use of local and sustainable materials. At the start of the summer, the grantee met with the people in the Kapchorwa community and visited the site with a representative from the country’s Ministry of Education. She returned to Cornell with a design adapted for the community, which she’ll continue to develop as part of her thesis. She plans to return to the community before construction begins.
