Thank you to all who submitted the Challenge school survey. We are in the process of researching sustainable solutions for charter schools and working to expand that effort to more innovative ideas in education design. Starting with the charter school model, Architecture for Humanity is exploring sustainable design solutions (as well as financing models) which can translate to private and public schools.

According to the World Bank, educating all children worldwide will require the construction of 10 million new classrooms in more than 100 countries by 2015. At the same time, millions of existing classrooms are in serious need of repair and refurbishment. We asked designers and architects to partner with students and teachers to envision the classroom of the future.
