This awesome storm-resistant school made almost entirely out of bamboo was designed by Eleena Jamil and went on to become the winning entry in the MyShelter Foundation's design competition.
The Phillipines is used to the regular interference of powerful tropical storms, so a large criteria of the design competition was that all submitted designs had to incorporate design features that would allow them to be easily repaired in the event of damage from such an occurrence. To this end, Eleena Jamil's bamboo school uses a straight-forward and easily replicated design from a material that grows in abundance throughout the Phillipines and is easily accessed.
