Views: 755
“To minimize construction time, and also
. . . reduce the number of separate building elements required,
. . . to be transported to the school’s remote location,
. . . ZHA proposes to combine the local skills of in-situ concrete construction,
. . . with new advancements in hot-wire cut foam formwork,
. . . that can be prepared on site, by an industrial robot,
. . . to create the barrel, and parabolic shaped moulds.

The modularity of the vaults,
. . . enables moulds to be used multiple times,
. . . further accelerating the construction process, and
. . . reducing costs.”

The vaulted buildings,
. . . will feature a ceramic external finish laid in a dark gradient of tones,
. . . that contrasts with the whitewashed interiors.
