Architecture and design can help considerably in rebuilding children’s lives around the world by bringing education closer to them. Spaces have a great impact on the lives of the people that inhabit them and by designing one that imparts education; millions of children can benefit. The competition aims to focus on architecture and infrastructure as an instrument of social change.

It is our responsibility as designers to redefine our role in the process of tackling social issues using design as a primary tool. Participants are to design a
multifunctional educational space to accommodate 200 students from the age of 5 to 11 years. These spaces should also function as an interactive space for
the local community post-school hours.

The chosen site should be in a region where education is inaccessible. The built-up area of the school should not exceed 500 square meters. The designed spaces should be innovative, encourage learning for children as well as strengthen the communal spirit while also maintaining some sense of social distancing. The space should incite a healthy dialogue amongst the local
communities thus, enhancing social development.

Participants should not only consider classroom areas, but also the in-between spaces for informal learning and quiet places while designing. The approach is to extend learning outside the classrooms as well, into the landscape by providing
alternative spaces for recreational activities. Participants are encouraged to develop their own program. The spaces designed should not be limited to standard activities, the designs should promote innovative activities that stimulate accelerated learning and development.
