This Ban Khamsamakkee School building serves as a model for ecological building. Its hybrid structure, constructed from local, sustainable composite materials, was designed through the Towards Change programme, developed by University of Strathclyde. Working closely with local residents and academics, the project aims to assist communities to make best use of local materials and resources, enabling them to become self-sufficient whilst reducing their environmental impact.
