The Boisrond Tonnere is a primary school that educates children from low income backgrounds. The school is located in Haiti’s capital city Port-au-Prince. During the devastating 2010 earthquake most of the city was destroyed, including a large part of the Boisrond Tonnere School.
Article 25 have used our architectural expertise to design a new earthquake resistant classroom as well as a new community space. In the event of another earthquake, the school will remain standing, reducing human fatalities and enabling students to return to a sense of normality soon after a natural disaster.
Building work with the input of local construction workers will be completed by later this year. When completed the school will provide a safe, well designed educational space for over 200 students.
Working with: Outreach International
