Bidyanondo Sampriti Orphanage School
The school is a bamboo-built structure on a raised timber platform and closely geared to the site and surrounding views of water and farmlands. The work is strongly archetypal, with the rectilinear plan metaphorically centred on a ‘hearth’ in the foyer. In that sense, the constructions of ‘Indigeneity’ are both formal and spatial. The building constructs an ‘Indigenous’ space and imagery which connects with the local spirit. It is a site of cultural production, an archetypal quest for an architecture that is sensitive to the local context and indigenous building tradition. - Editor
