From the Architects:
LAVA and ARUPs proposal was one of 116 submissions exploring diverse ideas for future-proofing relocatable learning spaces.
Relocatables are the decades old solution to changing demographics, remote community needs, and natural disasters. Unsightly, they are perceived as cheap and unpleasant spaces. This idea is upturned with spaces that are sustainable, practical, cost-effective whilst making learning fun and exciting.
The aim of the ideas competition was to produce effective spaces for 21st century learning that are sustainable, integrate with the landscape and connect with the school environment, suitable for prefabrication and mass customisation.
