KenCada International Academy, fondata sulla convinzione che una formazione internazionale è urgentemente necessaria e che dovrebbe essere resa accessibile a tutti i bambini del Kenya, chiama a raccolta i progettisti per la creazione di un nuovo spazio di apprendimento per i suoi giovani studenti a Bamburi, a nord di Mombasa in Kenya.
Gli architetti dovranno essere consapevoli della località in cui il nuovo campus andrà ad essere realizzato, cercando di coinvolgere la comunità locale. Dovranno essere usati i materiali unici della costa Swahili ed è richiesto un rapporto di equilibrio tra la modernità e le tradizioni vernacolari.
Il concorso è aperto agli studenti e ai professionisti nell'ambito dell'architettura, ingegneria e design.
The environment of a learning space has great effect on the growth, focus and emotions of a student. An effective learning space has the potential to dynamically influence student learning, as opposed to passively providing a venue for it. Through a flexible, thoughtful design, the building will be a teacher in itself.
The KenCada International Academy was founded on the conviction that the best of Kenyan education and international 21st Century learning is urgently needed and should be made accessible to all Kenyan children. The challenge is to design a new campus for KenCada that will serve as a learning space for its students. Designs should be mindful of the school's locality, and seek to engage the community it inhabits. Local materials unique to the Swahili Coast should also be celebrated. A balance of modernity and local vernacular traditions would be ideal.
Participants will be challenged to design a school, and the focus should be on the experience of the students and the teachers alike. The KenCada educational approach focuses largely on the facilitation of experiential and play-based learning by its students, as well as the development of a collaborative and open environment for its teachers. KenCada rejects the traditional method of linear teaching with the instructor as the sole source of knowledge, favouring a student centered approach.
