This school competition entry provides a facility to increase student awareness of human impact on the environment. The design emphasises propagation as a means of restoring the landscape, thus empowering students with the education of environmental solutions. Providing uninterrupted northern aspect and natural light to every habitable room provides both good passive solar design and an uplifting learning and living environment.
