Architecture for Humanity and the Global Nomads Group are hosting a design competition, which will tackle the health, environmental and performance concerns associated with today’s classrooms. Due to economic factors and rapid growth of our schools, portable, makeshift classrooms are now permanent features on schoolyards across the country. Global Nomads will be facilitating videoconferences to connect schools and architects. For more information on this collaborative project, visit: http://www.openarchitecturenetwork.org/challenge.
