Education in a green and eco-friendly setting is always a good thing. Keeping that in mind, architect Allen Post’s Eco-Modular classroom seems like the ideal place to learn. A winning design at the 2009 Open-Architecture Challenge, this concept is a temporary classroom that can be set up in far-flung areas and disaster-hit regions, ensuring education isn’t missed out on in difficult times.
The Eco-Modular classrooms use a butterfly-shaped roof that allows ample sunlight during the day. The structure also makes use of solar panels on the roof which in turn also hook up to a real-time website, allowing students understand the production and use of renewable energy. This indeed is a great place to educate and interact with young minds.
