Monastery School

Location : Yushu, China
Area : 1500m2

The school, situated at over 4500m in elevation and in a very remote region of Qinghai Province, is for children of travelling animal herders. The children families travel vast distances in their work and so the school gives a permanent base for living and learning when their families travel. Solar power, solar thermal design and geothermal technologies keep this building comfortable in the harsh winter conditions.
