“Ecologically Sensitive Architecture”
Panyaden School’s award-winning green bamboo and earth architecture is highlighted this month in international architecture/desgn and art online publication, designboom, the world’s first digital architecture and design magazine. Here’s an excerpt from the article:
“Panyaden School….educates its multicultural students through a fusion of buddhist principles and ecological sensitivity with a bilingual curriculum that not only teaches the classic subjects, but also touches on social and humanistic topics to help teach children how to live well-rounded happy lives.”
The magazine also mentions that our elementary school in Chiang Mai received a grand award in the overall category, and a gold award for sustainable architecture at the recent 2012 Design for Asia Awards during the Business of Design Week in Hong Kong (see our post on this).
