MODSKOOL

Empowering a migrant Indian community to design and build its own fit-for-purpose school.

MEET THE INITIATORS OF MODSKOOL

Swati Janu and Nidhi Sohane tell why they initiated ModSkool in this one minute video.

Introduction

Following the demolition of their school in the Yamuna Khadar slum, local youth mobilised and erected a basic shelter using plastic sheets and bamboo. Then, two architects joined forces with the community to build a school that can be easily (dis)assembled. This flexible design protects the community from natural and manmade disasters by providing climate responsive, self-build and better sanitation solutions.
