Thnout School

Thnout School is a critical rethinking of an enclosure. Located on an open rice-field with little covering vegetation, the project is composed of different classrooms and functions of a school to be organised around a centripetal courtyard. By interrogating the typology of the monastic ‘cloisters’, Thnout School is a architectural experiment that redefines learning environments in a rural context in Cambodia.

Thnout School will provide free English, Khmer and Community Studies classes to children and offers a public gathering place. It is scheduled to be completed in 2018.
