Qinmo Village School Project nears Completion

Designed by Assistant Professor John Lin, the Qinmo Village School Project is nearing completion with the recent construction of the library interior. Initiated in 2006 as part of a design workshop to re-think the standard three-storey concrete buildings which are typically donated as schools in rural areas of China, the design stresses sustainability and ecological responsibility. Today, the full scope of the work involves seven different projects which are funded individually by charitable organizations from Hong Kong. Every building project is coupled with a program initiative that emphasizes the education of villagers, whether it is through a school roof garden as an alternative teaching facility or the demonstration eco-household farm.
